“Every year, millions of British people, either disabled or older, suffer frustration, despair and pain because of relatively simple problems, which can be solved. The help and equipment is all around them: but they can't get to it.

“This is an enormous, and enormously under-reported national problem. It doesn't require brilliant new scientific advances, just practical, joined-up help to transform innumerable lives which could simply be happier than they are."

Jackie Ashley & Andrew Marr

In January 2013, the broadcaster and author, Andrew Marr, suffered a stroke, hospitalising him for two months. For The Alf Morris Lecture 2016, he and his wife, campaigning journalist Jackie Ashley, will talk about how disability has impacted on their lives.

The Alf Morris Lecture will begin at 7.00pm in the Shaw Theatre.  It will be bookended by a drinks Reception from 6.00pm and a Dinner from 8.15pm, both at the adjacent Pullman St Pancras Hotel.
