Celebrating Good Co-production: Bild Annual Members Event 2022

Join us for this exclusive, free Bild member’s virtual conference shining a spotlight on good examples of co-production in practice from across the sector.

The online event will be co-chaired by Bild’s Chair of Trustees Fiona Ritchie and Bild’s Learning Disability Advisor Kate Brackley.

We’ll be joined by professionals and experts by experience sharing some of the brilliant co-produced projects and initiatives that they have participated in this year. Speakers include:

  • Representatives of Bild for the Future – a group of over 30 people from eight advocacy organisations that work with Bild to ensure our work is rooted in the real-life experiences of people with learning disabilities and autistic people
  • Samantha Clark, CEO at Learning Disability England
  • Seema Islam, Parent-carer and chair of the Parent Carer Forum
  • Mother of Oliver McGowan and multi-award-winning activist Paula McGowan OBE
  • Kirsten Peebles, parent of an autistic son and co-chair of the NHS England Working Policy Group for Seclusion and Long-Term Segregation
  • Helen Toker-Lester, an independent consultant with over 30 years’ experience working in a range of roles to support people
  • Restraint Reduction Network Manager Alexis Quinn

There will also be opportunities for you to ask questions and share your thoughts and experiences with other members.
