Learning disabilities

This June, join our free webinars about caring for people with learning disabilities at the end of life.

Throughout St Ann’s 50th anniversary, we’ll be sharing 50 bitesize webinars. Each month focuses on a specific theme, with a new session to watch each week.

This month, our webinars will cover some of the less well-known aspects of death and bereavement. We’ll be sharing a new bitesize session each week to watch at a time that’s best for you.
