Considering Intimate Lives: Ways Forward (Free Event 9th Nov 2016)

 

ESRC Social Sciences Festival Event

Considering Intimate Lives: Ways Forward is a workshop for people with learning disabilities and/or autism, self-advocates, their families, friends, allies and those who work with and for them (e.g. care staff, support workers, social workers, and associated professionals). Members of the public, students, and activists who share an interest in the workshop themes are also welcome.

The workshop will focus on intimate rights and citizenship – our rights to love, sex, family, intimacy, friendship and community. These integral aspects of life are fragile in the lives of disabled people with learning disabilities and/or autism, who are routinely denied basic rights, justice and access within their intimate lives.

Come along and learn, think through, and imagine ways to create change. For free tickets book via http://intimate-lives.eventbrite.co.uk9 November 2015, 10.00 – 16.00. This event is FREE and lunch is provided. St Mary’s Church, Bramall Lane Sheffield S2 4QZ. For questions regarding access, or anything else, please email k.liddiard@sheffield.ac.uk
