UK Party Conference Guide 2018

24 September 2018

Key fringe events connected to health, social care and disability

You’ve heard about our excellent fringe event at the Labour and Tory conferences. Now here’s your guide to everything else that’s relevant to our sector.

With thanks to our brilliant Public Affairs Officer Viki Hemmingway, this is your essential guide to the festival fringe at the Labour and Conservative conferences. Who needs the Edinburgh Fringe when you’ve got this?

Warning: As even the BBC Parliament Channel isn’t covering all of the events relating to disability, health and social care, these fringe events are clearly too hot for TV.
