COVID-19 - A catalyst for adult social care funding reform

11:10 am - 12:10 pm

The need to reform adult social care funding is decades overdue – and remains one of the thorniest issues on the UK political landscape. The sector entered the COVID-19 pandemic on the back foot, facing mounting levels of demand and unmet need, workforce shortages, an increasingly fragile provider market and significant levels of underfunding.  

The pandemic clearly highlighted weaknesses in the sector’s resilience – and should act as a catalyst for reform. The shift in public perception of health and care services means there may never be a better time to address the relationship between the state and the individual and consider what a reformed social care funding system could look like.

Diversity and inclusion: Driving performance in public service

4:20 pm - 5:20 pm

The picture for diversity remains hugely varied across the public sector, both in the UK and internationally. Very few countries have achieved gender parity in senior public service roles, women in the UK public sector are, on average, paid 14% less per hour than men, and in 2018, 12% of civil servants who declared their ethnicity were black, Asian, and minority ethnic (BAME). Diversity is key to organisational performance, so what can we do to improve diversity and inclusion in the public sector workforce?

COVID-19 and the future of governance

11:45 am - 12:20 pm

Support mechanisms put in place by the UK government in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic have been unprecedented in scale and implemented at pace. As we move away from the initial crisis response, we need to start reconsidering our approach to accountability, sustainability and growth. How will decisions taken in the early days of the crisis be scrutinised? Are established models of governance fit for the future, and if not, what may have to change?
