Within Issue 90: Meaningful Lives

The theme of the next issue of PMLD Link (Summer issue) is ‘Meaningful Lives’. We would like this issue to illustrate the many different ‘meaningful lives’ lived by children and adults with PMLD and their families and friends. We are also interested in the more general questions ‘what is a meaningful life?’ and ‘what are the sources of meaning in the lives of children and adults with PMLD and their families?’ In what ways do you support people to lead a meaningful life? Do you believe people with PMLD have access to a meaningful life? If not, what barriers present challenges and how can the issues be improved?

Can you contribute an article to help us? Or perhaps you can send us a photo or image which shows ‘meaningful life’ as experienced by a person with profound and multiple learning disabilities?

Articles can be anything between 300 and 2000 words. We would be delighted to hear from anyone with an idea for an article, however provisional, and stand ready to assist you to develop your idea. If sending us a photo or image, please tell us who is in it and your reason for sending it.

The deadline for submission of completed articles and photos is 11th June. We look forward to receiving your contributions!
