LOC in the Lakes 2023: Videos and presentations online now!

June 16, 2023

LOC in the Lakes returned on 16 May with another successful conference.

More than 175 colleagues from health and care across north and west Cumbria (and beyond!) attended the event at Carlisle Racecourse.

It is the eighth time we and the Academic Health Science Network North East and North Cumbria (ASHN NENC) have organised the conference, which this year focused on ‘Igniting the power of people – new ways of working for better health and wellbeing’. It was great to see so many people from a range of organisations come together to think differently about people and community involvement.

If you were one of the delegates who joined us on the day, we hope you enjoyed it and found it valuable to you in your role. Feedback received has been overwhelmingly positive, with the thought-provoking speakers and workshops inspiring and motivating attendees to consider how they can work differently and begin to bring about real change in order to achieve better health and wellbeing for everyone.

Attendees shared some of their thoughts on social media:

“Excellent day at #LOCintheLakes – fantastic to see such diverse insight, experience and wisdom being exchanged. Great insights from participants in @wearenewlocal sessions from community powered commissioning and health & care. Well done to all @CLIC_Cumbria!”

“Inspiring day at my first #LOCintheLakes hear all about amazing communities working together. Great to connect too… Thank you”

Keep it going!
Many of you shared your ‘pledges’, describing the actions you were going to take away from the day. We would love to hear about any improvements you have already made (please keep sending us updates), and/or if you have any ideas or would like to be involved in keeping the momentum going.

As always, we would really value your feedback or suggestions to help us make our future events even better! Please send us any comments you have to: [email protected]

Thank you again to everyone who played a part in LOC in the Lakes 8!
