Learning from the pandemic to make a better future

Newport, South Wales. Wednesday, 16 November 2022

Since March 2020 we have all been through a lot.

“Getting back to normal” is something we hear a lot at the moment. But what is “normal”? For many people with a learning disability, life before the pandemic was far from perfect. Do we all really want to go back to that?

The pandemic, lockdown and social distancing have been especially hard on people with a learning disability and made many problems that already existed even worse. This situation has also made Wales a more unequal country for some people.

But the pandemic has also taught many of us new things. Many people with a learning disability have learned new skills and have found new ways to make their own and other people’s lives better.

Learning Disability Wales’s Annual Conference 2022 will look at what we have learnt from these experiences and ask, “Where do we go from here?” to make a better future.

How can you be part of the event?

We are looking for people, groups and organisations who can share what they have experienced and learnt during the Covid pandemic, and how these can be used to do things better in the future.

This could be about:

  • Providing care and support
  • Reducing social isolation
  • Improving physical and mental health
  • Protecting people’s rights
  • Increasing choice, voice and control.

 

The conference will be held over 2 days

  • Newport, South Wales. Wednesday 16 November 2022
  • Llandudno Junction, North Wales. Thursday 24 November 2022

 

There will be opportunities to be there in person to give a presentation, run a workshop or show a film, or contribute via video.

We encourage everyone who takes part in our annual conference to include and strengthen the voices of people with a learning disability.

We would particularly like contributions from people who experience racism.

We welcome contributions in Welsh and English.
