Residents' Week offers the chance for organisations and residents delivering social care and health services to discover ways to win business in Wolverhampton.

An event in the Hayward Suite at Molineux Stadium, Waterloo Road, WV1 4QR, on Monday 14 March, will provide the opportunity to meet the people who commission and procure these services - the Public Health Commissioner, Older People's Commissioner, Children's Commissioner and All Age Disabilities Commissioner.

Registration is at 1.30pm for a 2pm start and proceedings will draw to a close at 3.30pm.

Councillor John Reynolds, City of Wolverhampton Council Cabinet Member for City Economy, said: "This is great networking event for local businesses and residents to get involved in.

"They could discover a host of opportunities they were unaware of such as day opportunities for older people, carer support, mental health floating support, mental health accommodation based support, supported living services, the healthy child programme, services for victims of violence and abuse, and public health counselling and advice services.

"It encourages greater working between local organisations and residents delivering social care and health services and Wolverhampton commissioners, which can only be of greater benefit to the city."

By attending you will be able to:

  • Meet social care and public health commissioners
  • Get early information about forthcoming opportunities
  • Find out how to apply to win business
  • Meet procurement staff who manage the tendering process
