Representatives from local authorities and solicitors based in South west England convened in Taunton last week for the second Finders International Deputyship Development Day.
These unique regular events will be held to enable both public and private sector professional deputies to meet and network.
David Lockwood, Finders International Public Sector Development Manager said, “This is a unique opportunity for both sectors to come together and learn from each other”. He went on to add “it was clear from talking to many of the delegates that they share common issues, so the chance for them to talk and explore mutual solutions can only benefit the people they look after”.
Delegates came together to listen to presentations on financial management, costs and protecting vulnerable adults from abuse. Views were also shared on the services provided and support received by Deputys.
Finders International will soon announce the date and venue of their next event in the next few weeks, be sure to look out for the details as these events are rapidly becoming a must attend for those involved in Deputyship and Appointeeship.
