End of the month and lots going on!

We forgot to mention that it was National Inclusion week last week!

It was great to be out and about in the city meeting some great groups out there working on the same aims as us. So big thanks to all for the invites and we are looking forward to following up with some of the brilliant incentives (in fact Susie offered to do their data for one of them!)
