Govconnect was formed in July 2015 by a team of passionate people with one focus in mind - assisting the wide range of organisations challenged with delivering the NHS 5 year forward view strategy and all other associated healthcare policy. We are a registered social enterprise who's aim is to provide a platform to drive greater collaboration through a series of strategic conferences and accompanying digital and social engagement strategies.
Our main focus to date has been dedicated to the immense challenges that improved dementia care, diagnosis and research presents across the UK. Through our Dementia 2020 series of conferences we have enabled a wide range of stakeholders from government departments and arms-length bodies, to the NHS and local authorities, research institutions, and the charity and voluntary sector to assess the progress to 2020 and beyond.
As a social enterprise our beneficiary charities – which throughout the series have included the Alzheimer’s Society, Age UK and many others receive a % of revenues generated through all of our delegates who pay to attend. On top of the 200 healthcare professionals attending the event, we are once again utilising conference proceeds to contribute towards bursaries to fund places for people living with dementia and their carers to attend enabling the most important stakeholders to discuss the key priorities in the 2020 Challenge that will make the biggest difference to them.
