Symphony for Hidden Voices Inclusion Conference resources
As part of our successful Symphony for Hidden Voices Inclusion Conference, we heard from a number of excellent speakers who gave personal and thoughtful stories about how their lives have been shaped in different ways by their experiences of both inclusion and exclusion.
Among those who spoke was Joy Heal, who talked eloquently about the impact of her son Jonathan’s suicide and shared this poem.
Also in attendance was dDeaflinks, who have produced this helpful poster explaining about the support they provide to people who are deaf or hard of hearing.
