Celebration and Showcasing Event, 18th March

Over the last two years the DWELL project at the University of Sheffield has been working with groups of older local residents and stakeholders to develop designs for age-friendly housing and neighbourhoods.

We would like to invite interested Sheffield residents and professionals to celebrate all contributions to the project and the exciting achievements of the groups, and to participate in discussions with city planners of how these might be implemented.

The event will take place at St Mary’s Church Centre, Bramall Lane, Sheffield, S2 4QZ on Friday, 18th March 2016 from 10am -2pm (see programme below).

For further information and to book a place please contact Ann Clark, DWELL project administrator: Email:a.f.clark@sheffield.ac.uk or call Tel 0114 2220349.
