Raising the Standard: older people’s care and human rights.

29th November 2017 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Raising the Standards: older people’s care and human rights.

This short day conference is an opportunity to explore the issues of embedding a human rights based approach into the practical delivery of care services. It will combine a mix of presentation and workshop to enable participants to get the best from the day.

The event is free of charge but by committing to attend participants agree that should they fail to advise the organisers of their non-attendance at least 48 hours before the event that they will pay a fee of £25. This is in order to ensure attendance as we envisage the event to be over-subscribed and to reduce unnecessary costs.
