Disability Rights UK, the Race Equality Foundation and the LGB&T Partnership, in conjunction with the Department of Health, Public Health England and NHS England, are holding free voluntary sector learning event on Personalisation and Equalities, on 10 December at the Met Hotel in Leeds.
Key speakers at the event will include representatives from the Department of Health and equality and user-led organisations. Participants will be invited to explore Personalisation and Equalities in the context of the contribution of voluntary and community and social enterprise organisations. Further information and registration details are available here or email email@example.com.
Personalisation and Equalities are both prominent agendas in the on-going health and social care reforms. Personalisation focuses on strengthening individuals’ control and choice, allowing them to manage their own Direct Payments. Equalities focuses on the protected characteristics as covered in the Equality Act, and on the reduction of health inequalities. This event will explore how the two agendas can complement each other, in order to multiply the positive health and wellbeing outcomes they can bring.
