Event description
ONE In 5000 Foundation UK presents the first educational conference for the UK IA/ARM community.

About this Event

The ONE In 5000 UK are pleased to announce the inaugural IA/ARM educational conference for the UK IA/ARM community (families, affected children and adults, medical professionals).

The conference will be held over two days and will cover all issues that ONE In 5000 Foundation call our A.I.M.S., which are:

AWARENESS - Education, understanding and acceptance.

INFORMATION - Services; Sharing of experiences.

MEDICAL - Discussion of colorectal, urological, stoma care, continence, dilations etc.

SUPPORT - Psycho-social & mental health support for IA/ARM community.

There will be leading specialists in the medical field who have volunteered their valuable time to participate in this conference in their particular field of expertise for the relevant session.

The conference will comprise a series of seminars commencing at 9:45am (registration and refreshments from 9:00am) through to 5:00pm on Saturday, incorporating lunch and two breaks with drinks and snacks. On Sunday we commence at 9:30am (registration and refreshments from 9:00am) and finish at 12:00pm. One of the highlights will be on Sunday, following the conference, when we will be holding an informal get-together enabling families to chat, socialise and play together. Lunch will also be provided at this get-together.

The entire event is being held at Hilton St Anne's Manor in Wokingham, where attendees are welcome to book accommodation and make use of the facilities around the conference. Accommodation is not included in the ticket price and must be booked independently using the link below:

For parents bringing children to the weekend, we have organised for a room adjacent to the conference to be available for play and activities on the Saturday, allowing parents to freely attend the seminars. Whilst this play room will be supervised by some DBS checked adults, please note that ultimate responsibility for children will be with the parents, including toilet trips and nappy changes.

This conference would not be taking place without the amazing generosity of Cassie and Jon Finnigan, who tragically lost their beautiful boy Max, who was born with IA, last year at the age of 17 months to an unrelated cause. Their fundraising efforts and commitment to honour his memory has allowed this conference to happen. If you are able, please continue to support ONE In 5000 via Max's Just Giving page, where all of the funds for this event have been and continue to be raised, at:
