DLF is delighted to announce that Moving & Handling People 2016 will take place on Tuesday 2nd and Wednesday 3rd February 2016 at HRAC, Shoreditch. ‘Care in Action – safe routes to best practice,’ will offer delegates two full days of CPD accredited training based on our trusted formula of a mixture of practical workshops, focus seminars and plenary conference sessions.

In 2015 the event successfully relocated to Amnesty International’s Human Rights Action Centre facility in Shoreditch in the City of London. The Centre is a modern complex featuring an auditorium, seminar rooms and circulation spaces and we are delighted to be returning in 2016.

Delegates are invited to come along and discuss the issues and practical problems facing them and their organisation in the workshops and Open Forum that was such a success this year. The practical Open Forum first introduced in 2014 was a great hit with ‘real life situations’ being discussed and peer reviewed by experts and peers alike. On the lead up to the 2016 event we will be asking delegates to submit their most thorny issues or bring them along to the event.

Topics and speakers at the two-day packed training event are expected to include ‘manual handling & dementia, single-handed care management, ‘trial by jury’ and a specialist wheelchair workshop .

Chris Shaw, Chief Executive of the Disabled Living Foundation commented “DLF hears all the time that people get confused about the equipment that will help them live safely and independently. It is vital that professionals charged with supporting people living at home, in care settings as well as in critical care are up to date with the latest best practice and thinking. The beauty of an event like this is that you are sharing the learning experience in both a practical hands-on and getting to grips with the underlying theory at the same time. Two intensive days deal with a range of material and topics and leave delegates feeling energised and up to date.’’

Delegate bookings can be made via our dedicated website www.movingandhandlingpeople.co.uk where they will find lots of useful information.

Sponsors of the event can advertise in the extended printed programme or add inserts to the delegates’ bags. Companies that are supplying the equipment for the workshops will also be on hand to handle feedback and queries about the equipment.

Early birds can benefit from a saving by booking before September 30th 2015 and the Disabled Living Foundation is expecting bookings to be made earlier this year as the event has limited places and it will be ‘first come, first served’.
