Ethics Statement

We prioritise the voices & experience of disabled people at this conference. This is because they are rarely heard in church contexts. Family, supporters and people with a professional or other interest are also welcome. This is in keeping with our conference aim to be a place where disabled people can gather to resource each other & the church.

A partnership between St Martin in the Fields & Inclusive Church, this year hosted by HeartEdge.
