Following the success of their last dinners, this is the third TableCrowd dinner Insane Logic are holding around the theme of Social Care. The topic for the evening will be 'The Social Funding Debate: How do you finance growth in adult care organisations?’ It is a chance to meet industry professionals from the Health and Social Care sector, and hear from Elizabeth Corrado, Director of Collaborative Capital Ltd, Sam Gray, a specialist health and social care investor from Apposite Capital, and a Vinay Nair from Social and Sustainable Capital.

Our 3 speakers will be discussing the social finance sector and the potential options available for Social Care organisations. There will be a chance to ask our speakers questions you have and to discuss issues and ideas with others who work in and with Social Care organisations. Insane Logic will be facilitating the dinner which looks set to be an interesting and fun evening for those who are passionate about financing adult care. Come along to share and discuss the challenges your company faces and to share ideas and advice over dinner.
