Doors open at 8:30am with presentations commencing at 9:30pm. The event will close at 4:00pm.

The detailed carenorfolk programme is still in development.

CareNorfolk, The Norfolk Care Convention will signal the shift from a commissioning/service purchase model based on traditional formal services to supporting the outcomes people want through shaping the market as a whole.

We will set out some of the challenges we face as providers and consumers of care in the morning sessions and then explore in the afternoon sessions how the key actors including care consumers, formal and informal providers and the Council can work together in different ways to promote wellbeing more effectively and efficiently through shaping the Norfolk care market.

If there is someone in particular that you think can make a unique contribution to The Norfolk Care Convention and should be on the CareNorfolk stage on 15th November, you can let us know your proposal at
