The #KSSCOP17 Conference
The Kent, Surrey & Sussex Learning Disability Community of Practice annual conference took place on 15 June 2017 at the Charis Centre, Crawley.
It was a great day and lots of people came together to discuss how best to make sure people with learning disabilities get the right support so that they make the choices and decisions about the things they think are important in their lives and get great ongoing health and well being support.
This video was made during the day and shown at the end of the conference to sum up the energy and positivity of the day.
