At the start of life, disabled people may experience problems in fertility services and new genetic treatments bring with them ethical issues about the prevention of impairment.

At the end of life, there are inequalities in palliative care and welfare funding acroos the United Kingdom, the Court of Protection ruled importantly in the 'M' case, and the Equality & Human Rights Commission issued Inquiries and Reports on harassment and neglect, including in health and social care.

This event wil update you with the latest clear thinking in these areas.

To include the voices of disabled people in these emotive and important debates, Breakthrough UK commisioned disabled authors to write papers about the issues facing disabled people at the start and end of their lives.The key recommendations will be launched at the event.
