You are warmly invited to the next Social History of Learning Disability online Keeping in Touch event, taking place on Wednesday 8th December, 11.00-12.30. The event will focus on marking three key anniversaries in the recent history of learning disability in England and Wales:
• Better Services for the Mentally Handicapped White Paper 1971
• Valuing People White Paper 2001
• Winterbourne View scandal 2011
Join us for presentations from self-advocates who will be reflecting on lessons learned from the history, and what else needs to be done. This will be followed by a Q&A session with our expert panel - Gary Bourlet (Learning Disability England); Rob Greig (architect of Valuing People); and Stephen Unwin (author and journalist, and proud father of Joey).

We look forward to seeing you there.
with best wishes,
Liz Tilley, on behalf of the SHLD group.
