Breaking the Silence - 11 October

Changing our Lives will be holding their conference: 

Breaking the Silence - the voices of people in secure settings.

The conference takes place on 11th October from 9.30am until 1.00pm at the MAC in Birmingham.

"The morning will start with the launch of Lost and Found, a project supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund charting the history of secure settings from 1948 to the present day, uncovering the hidden and untold stories from local people with learning disabilities who used secure settings. 

We will present first hand accounts of life in a secure setting and how life has now changed for the positive for people now living in the community. This engaging and historically significant work has been co-produced by a dedicated 'History Team' of self-advocates and officers from Changing our Lives."
