Breaking Barriers is back after a highly successful conference in March 2018; attended by over 120 health and social care professionals across Lancashire, Trafford and the North West. The feedback was just as positive; with 100% of attendees stating they walked away having learned something new.
Breaking Barriers aims to bridge the gaps between services and provide better outcomes for the people we support. It is one day dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of the importance of advocacy and the impact it has in our communities.
With ground-breaking talks and workshops from leading industry professionals, key speakers and more; we bring you the latest trends, case law, legislation changes affecting the health and social care industry and much more.
