Multi-Agency Learning Review Following The Murder of Bijan Ebrahimi

Following the murder of Mr Bijan Ebrahimi in July 2013, Safer Bristol Executive Board decided to conduct a review of the management of circumstances leading to his death by all agencies and organisations involved in order to elicit any lessons that need to be learned. The review process was identified in order to employ a straightforward and un-bureaucratic approach to identifying the key points of learning for all the organisations involved and stimulate any necessary action with the minimum of delay.

This report examines agency and organisation responses and support given to Mr Bijan Ebrahimi, a resident of Brislington, Bristol, since arriving in the city and before his death. The objectives of this review are to examine the involvement and actions of individual organisations that had contact with Mr Ebrahimi before his death in order to extract learning, improve practice wherever necessary and prevent future incidents of this type.

NB. The review was originally completed in January 2014 but has been updated to reflect the findings of an investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission and associated representations made by members of Mr Ebrahimi’s family.

Access All Areas: Madhouse- Re:exit production in 2018

Inspired by a refusal to be silent, and a history of being ignored, 5 learning disabled artists take us on a wondrous adventure underground.

A goddess, a baby, a bird, an eater and a ghost guide us through a maze-like institution, growling to be heard, and waiting for the revolution that is forever promised.

As they tear back the walls to their lives, past and present spin together in a powerful expression of what it feels like to have a learning disability today.

Over two years, MADHOUSE re:exit has built on the legacy of Mabel Cooper, a resident of a long-stay hospital for people with learning disabilities, who pressed the button that blew up one of the last of these institutions in the UK. Now, award winning theatre company Access All Areas return with a fantastical, disruptive, immersive experience that explores what this history means to people with learning disabilities today.

Developed with Barbican Centre, Shoreditch Town Hall, The Lowry, Battersea Arts Centre, Wellcome Trust, Arts Council England, and the Open University.
