25 Nov 2011, by in Society & Welfare

Join us here on Touchstone blog on Monday 28 November, 12.30pm for an online/offline seminar with Andrew Dilnot, chair of the government’s Commission on Funding of Care and Support. He will be presenting his report on the funding of social care and support in England.

We’ll have the opportunity to discuss the implications for us as workers, service users and tax-payers. Others speakers include Alison Roche, UNISON officer for social care and Prof Peter Beresford, Director of the Centre for Citizen Participation at Brunel University, and we’ll have Barbara Keeley MP in the chair.

The event is taking place at Congress House and will be streamed live from 12.30pm, with the opportunity for online viewers to add comments and questions for Andrew Dilnot and the panel via Twitter or email.

Send messages on the hashtag #tuclive or email to [email protected] We’ll try to put as many points to the panel as we can.

The event is free to take part, and if you register here, we’ll send you an email reminder on Monday morning.
