Raising the Bar, National PMLD conference

Thomas Doukas and Annie Fergusson share what happened at the second Raising the Bar, National PMLD conference which took place at the University of Birmingham on 2nd November 2018.

Following the launch of the co-produced Core and Essential Service Standards for Supporting People with Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities in 2017, ​when the 1st conference was not only oversubscribed but a great success, the need and drive to create a better life for the people we care about was palpable. In the year since the launch, everyone has been working hard to see those changes happen. With this in mind and the continuous interest shown online at the Community of Practice Facebook Group we established to keep in touch, this 2nd conference was a much bigger event and a triumph again!

The day was packed with keynote speakers and workshops and an unprecedented number of families members of people with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD) were involved and attended the conference — and this was the strongest feature of the conference.
