In conversation about the Victoria & Stuart Project
Did you know MacIntyre has a Families Podcast? Available wherever you listen to your podcasts.
In the latest episode of the MacIntyre Families Podcast, you'll hear from three wonderful guest speakers from MacIntyre who are involved in the Victoria & Stuart Project.
What is the Victoria & Stuart Project?
The project enables conversations with people who have a learning disability around thinking about their futures and planning a good death.
It was named after two people who inspired the research project, Victoria Wilson (1970 – 2013) and Stuart Hasler (1978 – 2020), both of whom had learning disabilities. Each was able, with the support of their families, friends, and a team of professionals and services, to live fully until the end of their lives and die in the way they wanted: their own way.
How are we involved?
In this podcast, David Wilton, Mika Pickles and Meg Wilding share how they are involved in co-designing a toolkit and resources for end-of-life care planning with people who have a learning disability, within social care settings.
How will it help?
The Victoria and Stuart Project has profound implications for changing the way we all think about and talk about life and death, which is so important for people with a learning disability and their families.
