Disability and Social Inclusion Seminars

Each year the Division for Health Services Research and Management at City University London runs a series of events and seminars which provide a platform for academics, practitioners and service users to discuss developments on best practice and help promote social inclusion for disabled people and others at risk of social exclusion, through research, teaching and consultancy. Previous topics have included: welfare at work, disability services in an age of austerity, challenges for the third sector, insurance and social inclusion.

These events are free to attend but registration is essential.

All seminars commence at 1pm and finish at 2.15pm.
