EVENT: Working with Marginalised Groups

Registrations have opened for our November event which explores working with marginalised groups. This event, aimed at health and social care practitioners, focuses on a range of practical topics which broadly – but not typically – fall within the remit of ‘diversity’. It will explore examples and experiences of ‘diversity’ and highlight a range of individuals and groups in UK society who experience exclusion or marginalisation differently. The event is free to attend and is on Friday 4th November, 13:00-16:30 at our MediaCityUK campus.

Further information about this free event can be found here.
