Organised by the Disabled Living Foundation (DLF) as part of its Professionals Programme, Moving and Handling People is returning in February 2022 with a CPD programme for practitioners focusing on ‘tomorrow’s world’ care.

The conference will be one of the DLF’s first face-to-face events since 2019 and will deliver an educational platform of seminars, workshops and networking opportunities as it brings together thought leaders from across the healthcare sector.

This annual exhibition and conference will present brand-new content for moving and handling professionals. The 2022 event will explore future planning practices gained from the pandemic and discuss the latest strategies to comply with health and safety.

Delegates will learn and understand how practice is evolving through the latest approaches to minimise client contact. Additionally, attendees can discuss best practice with their peers.

Moving and Handling People 2022 will also explore assistance to stand, supporting complex community cases and bariatric patients in their home and more. Practitioners will be able to learn new techniques and practical problem-solving approaches from experienced facilitators.

Workshops will be delivered through a dedicated timetable so sessions involve smaller, hands-on groups. There will also be the opportunity to participate online for delegates who are unable to attend in person and prefer a virtual experience.

In terms of speakers, Moving and Handling People will present a panel of renowned experts who will be appearing exclusively in plenaries and seminars.

There will be free lunches and refreshments on both days. Every delegate will receive a CPD certificate of attendance and an informative event pack.

Moving & Handling People 2022 will take place from 9am-5pm on 22nd and 23rd of February 2022 at the De Vere Beaumont Estate, Burfield Road, Old Windsor, SL4 2JJ.

Since 1969, the DLF has been providing impartial advice, information and training on equipment for independent living. The charity’s DLF for Professionals programme includes a range of training and tools to support assessment and safe use of assistive technology.

In November, the charity worked with EquipU Community Equipment Partnership to launch of a joint version of the DLF’s popular AskSARA online self-assessment tool, which helps end-users identify appropriate mobility and independent living solutions to meet their needs.

Designed to help elderly and disabled people find products to help them live more independently, users of AskSARA can link to over 10,000 products for daily living listed in the Living Made Easy marketplace, many of which can be immediately purchased from online retailers and delivered to their door.
