Webinar Series - June 2021

Updated: Jun 14

The NPC Annual Convention will host an impressive list of leading experts at four topical webinars this June. The free to view sessions will feature key discussions on older people’s rights, pensions & income, health & social care and uniting the generations.

Our confirmed speakers include world famous health and social care leader Professor Sir Michael Marmot, Director of the International Institute for Society and Health; Gail Cartmail, President of the TUC; Jackie Killeen, Director of the Equality and Human Rights Commission; and Judith Ish-Horowicz MBE, Founder of the UK’s first nursery in a care home.

The virtual Convention replaces our usual annual in- person get-together, which was halted by the pandemic. But our free to view sessions, which will also be streamed on YouTube promise to be a must-see events.

General Secretary Jan Shortt said: “The Annual Convention is an important event on the NPC calendar, and while it is quite different this year, we want to ensure that it is very much relevant to our policies and campaigning remit. We hope as many people as possible support it .”

A full programme of speakers will be released soon.
