About the CRU Webinar Series with Dr Michael Kendrick 

To be human is to be vulnerable. However, people with disability often live with greater vulnerability than others do. In an attempt to keep people safe it is possible to limit their lives and choices by being over-protective and so worried about risk that they have little chance of experiencing the good things in life.

Join CRU for one, two or all three webinars featuring Dr Michael Kendrick exploring how we can go about securing the good life and supporting choice.

Held over three Fridays, you can be part of the CRU-hosted chat to share your reactions and hear from others in an on-going conversation throughout the series. The webinars are pre-recorded and a recording of each will be available to view for 14 days.

The webinars:
Webinar 1 : Friday 11th February - Vulnerability and Safeguarding
Webinar 2 : Friday 18th February - Securing the Good Life: Succession &  Planning for the Future
Webinar 3 : Friday 25th February - Dilemmas in Supporting Choice
