Planning ahead for the end of life with people with learning disabilities
This webinar is free of charge and open to anyone. It will also be recorded and made freely available online afterwards.
The webinar will be of particular interest to anyone who is involved in supporting people with learning disabilities who are reaching the end of life, and those who are bereaved. That includes families, carers, health and social care staff, service providers and commissioners. People with learning disabilities are also warmly invited to attend, although not all of the talks or slides will be in accessible format.
Please note: If you register for the webinar, you will receive a joining link about a week before the event
Booking is essential to attend this event.
