The Care for Norfolk conference will take place on May 22 at Norwich City Football Club on Carrow Road, from 9.30am until 4pm.

A number of speakers have been confirmed for the event, including Nadra Ahmed OBE, who is chair of the National Care Association.

Ms Ahmed was made an OBE for her services to social care in 2006 after more than 35 years in the field.

Amongst other charities, she is a trustee of Parkinson's UK and provides advice on care related issues to numerous government departments.

Dr Jennifer Bute, a former-medical doctor living with early onset dementia, will also be speaking at the event.

Drawing from her recently published book Dementia from the Inside: A Doctor's Personal Journey of Hope, Dr Bute will be providing insight into how life might be improved for those with the condition.

The story was turned into a Radio 4 documentary, which was described as “no-nonsense and life affirming” in a Guardian review.
