How will this benefit you?

Our friendly team will be attending a variety of locations in person this autumn, to give demonstrations and guidance on digital technology and online tools that can help people stay independent, provide a guide to key information about social care in Kent and help signpost to the right place for support.

 

Who can attend?

Anyone who wants to know about social care in Kent. This may be especially useful for people that would like to stay independent at home, family carers of adults and staff from health, social care and voluntary sectors. Staff from local private businesses are also welcome.

 

How do I book my space?
