What’s on offer?

This interactive event aims to facilitate conversations about inclusive and accessible spaces in Salford and to generate ideas about how to increase inclusivity across the city. The conversations will also raise awareness about the need for more inclusive and age-friendly spaces across the City and inform the general public about how research at the University of Salford is helping develop such spaces.
