An online event to inform changes that could be made to reduce health inequalities for people with Learning Disabilities in Liverpool

We are inviting people from across the city of Liverpool that have lived experience of learning disabilities, care for a person with learning disabilities or work in the area of Learning disabilities to attend a virtual workshop. This will be an opportunity to share your experiences from Covid-19, hear from others and think about the changes that could be made to reduce health inequalities for people with learning disabilities.

A wide range of organisations and people are involved, including Liverpool City Council, Aintree PCN Network, Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust, People First and Mencap.

This work is part of the Complete Care Community programme, a national programme run by NHS England’s Primary Care Network Programme. This local network will inform a national effort to address inequalities in the UK through collaborative working.

The insights gathered in this event will inspire a team that will be dedicating the next 4 months to test new ways of working with people with learning disabilities. We will be hosting another open event in the summer to take stock on what we’ve learnt and ways we can take this learning forward together.

This virtual event will be held on April 7th 1-4 pm via Zoom.

Please let us know if you need any support to take part. If you have any questions you can contact Nadeen Haidar (nadeen.haidar@nesta.org.uk).
