Moving and Handling People 2019 returns for its 25thyear on 7th and 8th August with an optionalNew Products Showcaseon the evening of the 6th.  Moving & Handling Peopleis a CPD-accredited event focussing on positive solutions for practitioners and clients organised by the Disabled Living Foundation (DLF).  

This year’s conference includes a new line-up of speakers and fresh up-to-the-minute talks along with plenaries, seminars and hands-on workshops. For those interested in paediatrics, new opportunities to attend a workshop more relevant to their field have been added; half the workshops will have a separate adult’s and children’s strand to enable further specialisation.

DLF also celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2019 and is inviting delegates to reflect back on the past 50 years by looking at the developments of equipment and techniques within the world of moving and handling. What lessons have we learnt from past techniques and how this has informed our practice for the future?
