In this talk Chris Hatton will discuss what we know about the early and ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on people with learning disabilities, focusing mainly but not exclusively on the UK. Chris will also share the implications of what we know for policy and practice, from the perspectives of different groups of people.

Chris Hatton is Professor of Social Care in the Department of Social Care and Social Work, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK. For over 30 years he has been involved in research to document and understand the inequalities faced by people with learning disabilities, and evaluate policies and practices aimed at tackling these inequalities. He is currently part of a UK-wide team documenting the experiences of people with learning disabilities through the COVID-19 pandemic.

The event will be chaired by Emily Thomas.
