logoThe Disability Rights UK Independent Living Conference may be fully booked but you can still watch and participate via youtube and twitter #ILvision

We have had such a fantastic response to our one-day Independent Living conference that all our places for the event are booked.

But even if you cannot attend you can still participate.

The aim of the conference is to reach a common understanding of what independent living is today. This will form a basis for future campaigning and policy development for us and for like-minded organisations. See the agenda.

The conference takes place on Friday 18th July: 10.30am to 4pm. During the day we will be streaming the event via our youtube channel. There will also be regular conference updates via twitter – #ILvision – and we will be encouraging people to tweet in suggestions and comments which will form part of the conference agenda.

Help us make this a day to remember.

Please note: This event will be filmed and photographed. Anyone who specifically wishes to be excluded from this should contact karen.earl@disabilityrightsuk.org or telephone 07411 067367. See also our privacy policy, disclaimer and copyright information.
