A History of Learning Disability: Exhibition Launch

 

Join us for the launch of our new exhibition on the history of learning disability nursing, in person and online.

In person only from 5pm – 6pm at the Royal College of Nursing for refreshments and a chance to look round our new exhibition on the history of learning disability nursing.

Talks from 6pm (in person and online): Hear from Steve Walden and Owen Barden about what we can learn from the experiences of people with learning disabilities in the past, and Bob Gates on the more recent history of learning disability nursing. Gavin Harding will tell us about his life and achievements as the first person with a learning disability to get an MBE and his work at NHS England with Sarah Wright, and Sarah Leigh will explain why hospital passports are essential, speaking from personal experience seeking support for her son, who has a severe learning disability.
