Lisa Curtice: Lisa talks about the importance of including everyone's story and how people will communicate this is lots of different ways. She reminds us that it's important to find lots of ways of capturing people stories, especially those with profound and multiple disabilities and that documents and other things can tell stories as well as people's voices. Lisa also talks about how SCLD, Iriss and the Open University can follow on from the conference in working on a digital storytelling project.

Jan Murdoch: Jan tells the audience about some money SCLD and other organisations have got from Investing in Ideas to do some research on finding out what support is out there for people with learning disabilities from black and minority ethnic communities and how we can ensure families from different cultural backgrounds can access good supports.

Lisa Curtice: Lisa thanks everyone for coming and in particular thanks the people and organisations involved in making the event happen.
Recorded at Forgotten Citizens, Tuesday 17th June 2008, Crowne Plaza Hotel, Glasgow.
A national conference celebrating Learning Disability Week 2008.
