Celebrating the expression and voice of marginalised communities and identities.
Grace Eyre celebrates the voices, capabilities and potential of people with learning disabilities and autistic people.
However, we know from our own experiences and The Equality Act 2010 that inclusion and the celebration of diversity are far greater than simply one or two aspects of a person.
For example, as an organisation how much do we know about and celebrate pronouns and gender or build bridges with diverse communities beyond the learning disability sector?
How can we get better at supporting people’s rights to have and talk about relationships? To choose what their week will look like? To explore their intersectionality as complex and interconnected persons?
The Inclusion Conference will explore these matters and more so that we all have the tools and understanding to be inclusive of all aspects of a person and grow as a Grace Eyre family.
And in so doing connect, value and engage deeper than we have before, both together and with people and communities we have yet to build those bridges with.
I look forward to seeing you there!
