As we find our ‘new normal’ living with Covid-19, the rules around visiting our families have changed.

For people living in supported living or residential care the rules are often more complicated.

This session is being hosted by the British Institute on Human Rights.

We will be talking about:

• What our human rights are

• How we can use human rights to think about visiting policies

• How we can use human rights to challenge restrictions on visiting our families

The session is for LDE members and is aimed at people with learning disabilities and families.
