On the 18 May 2018 we will be hosting our third Disability Summit which will be the finale of our Equality, Diversity and Human Rights Week 2018.

The summit will bring together policy and decision makers, researchers, practitioners, activists and disabled staff from across the health and social care sector, creating a space to hear the voices of people with disabilities and their experiences of working in the health and social care sector.

We are holding the event in partnership with Barts Health, along with support from Vercida Consulting and the Asian Fire Service Association.
