Postponement of the State of Caring Conference due to COVID-19

Carers UKIn response to the continuing coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Carers UK is committed to maintaining its services as effectively as possible.

They have been monitoring the outbreak very closely. As you know the situation has rapidly changed as has the guidance. As a result they have decided to postpone the State of Caring conference scheduled to take place on 16th July 2020.

The State of Caring Conference 2020 will now take place on Wednesday 21st October 2020 at Holiday Inn Bloomsbury. See here for more details about the conference.

They will continue to take bookings, however, they will not get in touch with conference updates before the end of May as they do appreciate everyone’s priorities and way of working have been impacted due to the latest developments. Contact them by email or visit their website for more information and updates.
