Challenging Times: Ensuring Values Support Ordinary Lives

The National Federation of Voluntary Bodies hosted a One Day Event on 23 June 2011 to explore the progressive values driving children and adult disability support services entitled:  Challenging Times: Ensuring values support ordinary lives - Exploring Family and Person Centered approaches.

You can view the programme of the event to see full details of the speakers and presentations.

The keynote speakers were: Carl Dunst, John O Brien and Gerard Quinn

The conference provided an opportunity to hear from inspiring international speakers on the importance of values shaping disability support services and to debate their relevance for children and adults in Ireland today. The format for the day opened with keynote speakers presenting in a joint plenary session and then divided into separate child & family and adult streams. The conference closed with a joint closing plenary session capturing the common themes and linkages.
