Legendary Paralympian Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson DBE to speak at NALC conference


Legendary Paralympian Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson DBE, now the newly elected president of the Local Government Association, is to speak at the National Association of Local Councils (NALC) Future Communities 2021 online conference on 2 December 2021.

One of Britain's greatest Paralympic athletes, Baroness Grey-Thompson DBE, amassed a remarkable medal haul over 16 years and five Paralympic Games of 11 gold, four silver and a bronze. In 2005, she became Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson for her services to sport.

In preparation for her retirement from the track, she expanded her television presenting career on BBC One and BBC Wales. She went onto have a parliamentary career, and on 23 March 2010, was created a Life Peer. She was introduced in the House of Lords on 29 March 2010 and sat as a crossbencher speaking on several topics such as disability rights, sport, welfare reform and local government.

Future Communities is NALC's first-ever one-day online conference. The conference will focus on why local (parish and town) councils are pivotal to building back stronger and better, and shaping thriving, resilient future communities.
