Webinar announcement: The social care sector in England and COVID-19: mapping the way towards recovery and increased resilience, 24th May 2pm GMT

This webinar will be an opportunity to share, and gather feedback on, research to identify areas in which international evidence can inform policy and practice in the Social Care sector in England. This is part of Social Care COVID Recovery and Resilience, a research project that is drawing together learning from scientific evidence and from international experiences of long-term care systems during the COVID pandemic. 

Since the project started in January 2021, the research team has carried out a mapping of evidence and international experiences in relation to long-term care and COVID, as well as a situational analysis of the impacts of the pandemic on people using and providing social care in England and of the policy and practice responses to these impacts. Together with stakeholders and experts through experience, they have also mapped, using Theory of Change, a path towards recovery and increased resilience.

In this webinar the research team will present initial findings from the first part of the project and will also gather views from participants on the map towards social care recovery and increased resilience and on the key topics that the project should focus on when it examines in more detail the experiences of other countries and the scientific evidence on COVID-19 and social care in the next parts of the project

The Social Care COVID Recovery and Resilience project is funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and is a collaboration between the Care Policy Evaluation Centre (CPEC) at the London School of Economics & Political Science (LSE) and the Nuffield Trust, with support from the National Care Forum. 

This webinar will start at 2pm UK time and will last for 90 minutes (60 minutes of presentations and 30 for discussion).
