The Kent, Surrey & Sussex Learning Disability Community of Practice is pleased to announce bookings are now open for the 2018 conference. The theme for the day will be ‘Sustaining Our Community’.

There will be a variety of workshops to choose from, including a session from Viv Cooper OBE, CEO of the Challenging Behaviour Foundation. We will also be launching a new KSS Community of Practice Facebook group.
