The University of Salford has hosted the annual general meeting of the Access Association, the UK organisation for professionals working to improve access to buildings and facilities.

SURFACE Director, Professor Marcus Ormerod, spoke at the event, which included an afternoon of CPD sessions on research in access and inclusive design.

Marcus presented Go Far, a multi-disciplinary project on outdoor falls among older people and the role of the environment in posing or mitigating risk.

Funded by Lifelong Health and Wellbeing (LLHW), the project will feature at a forthcoming LLHW showcase on impactful projects in ageing studies.
