Conversations on Care seminar - 26 January

Conversations on Care seminar

The regulation of social care: Improving the treatment of workers through regulatory law’.

This is the new revised date for this event. If you signed up for the original date in December you do not need to sign up again.

The speaker will be Professor Lydia Hayes, Head of Kent Law School at the University of Kent.

The session will be chaired by Professor Mary Daly, Governing Body Fellow, Green Templeton College and Professor of Sociology and Social Policy at the Department of Social Policy and Intervention, University of Oxford.

Professor Hayes will present new research, undertaken during the pandemic, showing that care safety and job quality in care settings are inseparable. The findings point to failures in the regulation of care provision. Job quality indicators, highly relevant to the objective of care safety, were being ignored or marginalised by providers and inspectors.

Professor Hayes will make the case that existing regulatory law provides the social care sector with a framework of sector-specific employment standards. A better understanding of the potential of regulatory law could help organisations that represent either employers or workers to improve terms and conditions of work as an inseparable element of the quality of care.

The event will be held via Zoom on:

  • Wednesday 26 January

  • 18:00 to 19:30
