Combating Isolation and Supporting Well-being
Lemon & Crane are running a conference for practitioners
on using creativity, nature, positive relationships,
friendships, empowering family support and financial
inclusion.

Research by Lemos & Crane has found that isolation and
negative friendships and relationships were key
contributory factors that increased the risk of harassment,
abuse and cruelty against adults with learning disabilities
living in the community.

The conference will bring together leading experts,
experienced front-line practitioners and innovative
practitioners, to consider how adults with learning
disabilities living in the community can be supported to
combat isolation, harassment and abuse and build long-
term resilience and well-being.

The conference will take place in London on

Seen, Valued, Heard
Inclusion North has for the last few years been working
with its members around crime, disability harassment and
hate crime against people with learning disabilities in
different ways.

We also know that many people and organisations have
been doing great work to tackle this in our member areas
too.

Inclusion North is going to hold a big event for its member
areas. The aims of the event are to find out and look at
what has been happening across Yorkshire and the
Humber and the North East and to see if we can link this
work together.

The event is for people and organisations from Inclusion
North member areas only.

The event will be in York on
7
th
November 2014

Local areas can choose to send two people from a self-
advocacy group from their area to show case their work at
a big market place.
We will be releasing more information about this in the next
week or two.
