Our annual conference is an important event in the Unite Professionals Calendar and a key point in being able to deliver our promise of providing our Case Managers and staff with opportunities for ongoing learning..
This years conference has the objective of providing a deeper understanding of the roles that different parties play in the progression of a personal injury case. Over the course of the first morning we will be looking at the processes involved in engaging an expert witness, joint settlement meetings from the perspectives of a defence lawyer and the process of social care assessment leading to the award of direct payment hours and how it all fits into the case management journey.
The Billy Chip Foundation®
We are also thrilled to be welcoming Jon Hope of the Billy Chip Foundation® who will be joining us to disuss the foundations charitable work with homeless people in the South West of England.
The Registered charity was set up on 2018 to continue the legacy of Billy Abernethy-Hope, a twenty two year old ambulance driver who was the inspiration and idea behind BillyChip which partners with cafes and hot beverage outlets to provide a homeless person with a warm drink.
As part of our conference package, each delegate will be provided with a BillyChip to pass on to a homeless person and to create awareness of the foundation in their local areas to help this Charity become nationwide.
