2018 Annual Conference

Welfare, work and wellbeing

The Devon Strategic Partnership held its 2018 conference on 12 March 2018 at the Coaver Conference Centre, Exeter.

The theme of the day was economic insecurity. Employment levels are at a record high, fewer people receive out of work benefits and the number in absolute poverty is decreasing – but at the same time, income inequality is increasing and social mobility declining.

Many working age households, in particular, are less economically secure and their ability to maintain a decent quality of life is at risk.

The aim of the day was to explore these issues, discuss their impacts and identify how the partnership can make a difference.

The programme for the day, presentations and workshop notes are available below:
