Ingeus Pluss were very proud to sponsor the ERSA 2016 conference - New Horizons: making a difference in changing times.
It was a fantastic opportunity to influence, debate and network at a time of critical change in the sector. It was also a timely opportunity to raise the profile of our new strategic alliance with Ingeus to the DWP and Welfare to Work industry*.
Barry Fletcher (COO, Ingeus) and Steve Hawkins (CEO, Pluss) both took to the stage to present at the plenary sessions on 'Changing landscapes; changing needs' and 'Social Justice'.
The other key note speakers were the extremely informative, Torsten Bell (Director of the Resolution Foundation), and Paul Johnson (Director of the Institute for Fiscal Studies). You can read their presentations here.
* Ingeus and Pluss have formed a joint initiative to help people with disabilities and long-term health conditions into sustainable work. Our collaboration brings together Ingeus’ proven expertise in supporting jobseekers, including those with complex health conditions, with Pluss’ award winning approach to helping people with disabilities back into work. Together we are developing a next-generation service offer for the Work and Health Programme which will help tackle disadvantage and reduce inequality.
