100 Voices 2014 in London
Tuesday 2 September 2014
Brandon Trust is holding the UK’s biggest ever conference for people with learning disabilities and autism on Saturday – and this year, 100 Voices will is at the Emirates Stadium, home of Arsenal football club, and will be attended by more than 200 people with learning disabilities and their support workers.
This year’s special 20th anniversary conference will explore how far society has come in relation to people with learning disabilities and autism in the last 20 years, and what the goals and priorities should be for the next two decades.
Brandon Trust chief executive Lucy Hurst-Brown says: “100 Voices is by far the most important event on our annual calendar. It’s a critical moment for us to hear, understand and act upon the views of the people we support – and this year’s special 20th anniversary event will be the biggest and best.”
Philippa Hamilton, pictured, who is supported by Brandon Trust and a member of the charity’s consultative committee, has taken an active role in all three previous 100 Voices events and recently visited the venue for a pre-event tour as part of the charity’s preparation for 100 Voices.
She added: “I’m excited and looking forward to it. It’s important to everyone because you learn so much from these conferences and have your say.”
