Forthcoming webinar dates

In Control has launched an exciting new service - webinars!

We will be hosting regular events on key topics in relation to personalisation, meaning that you will be able to get access to cutting edge information from the sector all without having to leave the comfort of your office.

This new service will enable delegates to save the time and expense of travelling to an event. They will be able to participate in short, focused online sessions involving leading people in the personalisation field. Delegates will even have the opportunity to ask questions afterwards!

A number of dates have already been secured for the next few months. Some of these will be open access, however a number (those marked with *) will only be available to members of our Stay Connected network.

Forthcoming webinars include:

Strengthening Disabled People's User Led Organisations (DPULOs)*

16 February 2012 - 10am to 10.45am

Rich Watts

National Lead for Strengthening DPULOs Programme and Director of Essex Coalition of Disabled People (ECDP)

Disabled people's user-led organisations (DPULOs) can and do play a unique role in both representing the voice of disabled people and in delivering public services, particularly in social care.

In this session, Rich Watts will provide an overview of the work that DPULOs do and will share evidence and best practice from DPULOs across the country and the difference they're making. He will also share information about the Office for Disability Issues' Strengthening DPULOs programme that promotes the sustainability of DPULOs.

Before joining the webinar, you can find information about the Strengthening DPULOs Programme on the ODI website or Facebook.

Just Enough Support*

22 February 2012 - 2pm to 2.30pm

Ruth Gorman, CEO Imagine, Act and Succeed

As the impact of the economic downturn hits public services most organisations will experience a reduction in funding over the coming years and possibly longer. This session will enable participants to be proactive and take this opportunity to make a concerted push around developing alternatives to just paid support, promote better outcomes for people and to be in control of their own destiny as funding reduces.

Personal health budgets

14 March 2012 - 2pm to 2.30pm

Vidhya Alakeson, In Control's Personal Health Budget Programme

This webinar will explore how personal health budgets are progressing including good practice and challenges and will look at what needs to be done ahead of the roll out for continuing health care in April 2014.
