We are delighted to announce that the next Social History of Learning Disability Conference will be held at The Open University in Milton Keynes on the 11th and 12th July 2023.

This is an inclusive conference with accessible presentations to which people with learning disabilities and families are very warmly welcomed.
Presenting the latest learning and research from self and family advocates, alongside academics and practitioners - in the UK and internationally - the conference will enable delegates to explore the topic of community.
