For the first time, care leaders are offering a clear way of making sure that community centred approaches are embedded in health and social care services.

TLAP is running two big events at NCASC this year - a sub-plenary on Co-production straight after the Presidents' address on Wednesday 2 November in Exchange 8/9/10 at11:20am and later that day, the launch of "Engaging and Empowering Communities: our shared commitment and call to action" on stand B24 in the Exhbition Hall at 5:00pm. If you’re attending the conference, we would love for you to join us.

The other members of the group are occupational therapists. Detailed information is shown in the attached documents which include information on how to apply. The deadline for applications is 19 August 2016.
