This conference aims to be a space for knowledge, reflection and debate on local care policies from different perspectives: the improvement and innovation in services and resources of proximity, such as home help, home care technologies, functional adaptation of housing and personal assistance; integrated care and strengthening of public-community cooperation in the framework of care throughout life; recognition and resources for caregivers and advancement towards caregiving municipalities that place care as an axis of municipal action, key to sustainability of life and social cohesion.

The results of the research and diagnosis on care services in the province of Barcelona generated within the framework of the "Transformative Project: Towards a new public system of care in the community", which aims to strengthen local care services, as well as to promote innovation, recognition and co-responsibility in care, will be presented. Research in the field of home care and personal assistance will also be shared, as well as the recommendations report of the Forum of Experts in Care for the improvement of the social organization of care in the province of Barcelona; a space of specialized knowledge created with the aim of guiding and accompanying this project.

Our colleague and planning expert, Mayte Sancho, is among the participants in a round table discussion entitled: "Supports, technologies and care", with a presentation on "Personal assistance: a figure of the future between support and care".
