National Market Development Forum - Spring 2016

TLAP staged the first of the quarterly-held National Market Development Forum on Wednesday 23 March 2016 in Grosvenor Square in London. The National Market Development Forum is an event that brings together a range of people, including those who use services and carers, as well as senior leaders from provider organisations, strategic bodies and the Department of Health.

The purpose of the forum is to learn from each other's perspectives and contribute to a co-produced response to the challenges facing those commissioning and providing or receiving support. Overall, the National Market Development Forum aims to influence the creation of a sustainable market which delivers high quality, personalised support during a time of austerity and increasing demand.

The format of the meeting included speakers, Q&A sessions, table discussions and plenty of opportunity for networking.

  • The Care Act, 12 months on - a view from people who use services by Members of the National Co-production Advisory Group John Evans and Bill Davidson.
