L’Arche invites you to our panel discussion on 'Belonging in a time of loneliness'.

Adults with learning disabilities experience some of the worst forms of social marginalisation and loneliness. Many do not spend time with anyone who is not paid to be with them. In a world that can feel lonely and isolating, L'Arche Communities are places where people with and without learning disabilities can experience togetherness and friendship.

Join us as we discuss the value of intentional communities in creating places of belonging in an age of loneliness.

Speakers:

Reverend Sam Wells, Vicar of St Martin-in-the-Fields

Samantha Clark, Chief Executive of Learning Disability England

Richard Keagan-Bull, member of L'Arche London

Baroness Sheila Hollins, Professor of the psychiatry of learning disability at the University of London, and member of the House of Lords

Chaired by Maggie Fergusson, journalist and broadcaster

On 22nd November 2018 from 6:30 – 8pm

Venue: The Wellcome Collection, 183 Euston Road, NW1 2BE
