Our Society is a place to:

  • share your struggles and engage in honest, open discussion
  • ask for advice, offer help, and promote your activities
  • tell your story, hear others’ experiences, and find resources

    Event: Co-design Our Society

    We ran a free event on 20 January 2011 in Leeds. Please visit the Event Group for feedback and thoughts on next steps.

    If you'd like to hold an event where you are or on a specific theme, please let us know! (It's not as difficult as you might think - there's a really helpful guide by Dan Slee).
