Event description
Find out more about our commitment to addressing equality of opportunity and access to health for people with learning disabilities.

About this Event

Find out about how we are making sure that people with learning disabilities have equal access to opportunities and health care.

We will be welcoming everyone to the event and hope to make the event accessible to all:

  • Moblioo unit
  • Ramps
  • Colour coding
  • Easy read signs and information
  • British Sign Language Interpreters

Our national speaker will be Gavin Harding MBE, who is an advisor to NHS England, has a learning disability and was the Mayor of Selby.

Our focus will be on inclusion, opportunity, learning and celebrating achievements.

There will be four Listen, Share, Learn sessions where you'll be able to listen to others, share your thoughts and learn new things. You can choose two from the following:

  • The Dental Access Service - making sure people with learning disabilities get access to a great dental service that is designed to support their needs.
  • Reasonable adjustment and health inequality - Find out more about the nationally recognised work 2gether NHS Foundation Trust has been doing in these areas.
  • The Opportunity Zone - meet and talk to organisations which support people with learning disabilities to get into paid or unpaid work and training; and hear about the experiences of people who are taking advantage of these opportunities.
  • Making Things Easy Read - Learning from people who use health services about how we can communicate more effectively.

There will be lots of opportunities for people to ask questions and share their experiences.

Kingfisher Treasure Seekers will also be telling us about a project with the local Police Constabulary, recruiting people with learning disabilities as Police Cadets. Some of the Cadets will be coming along to tell us about their experience.
