The September 2012 ADASS IMG Conference attended by over 200 people put the "Web of Support" vision on the map amongst key stakeholders in councils, IT suppliers, policy leads and partners.

The vision supports & extends the DH Information Strategy putting the citizen at the centre. ADASS IMG is now leading national informatics work to deliver the Care & Support Reform Programme jointly managed by DH, LGA & ADASS. This conference will enable its multiple workstreams to be presented within the context of the national policy.

It will be a forum for all those responsible for LA adult social care system development and implementation to engage with the latest national thinking, taking practical lessons back to their organisations.

The agenda is still being finalised but a brief overview can be found below.
