Radical Roots to Practical Action

Our annual Salford VCSE Conference was held on Thursday 23rd May 2019 at the AJ Bell Stadium and explored the theme of 'Radical Roots to Practical Action'. We were thrilled to be joined on the day by:

Sea of Hands Rainbow shoe

There was an interactive 'social showcase' running at the conference; with START's Reach Out Start to End Suicide sea of hands, a giant rainbow shoe signed in support of Salford's LGBTQI+ community and a social history timeline spanning the length of the conference, which attendees could add their own history to.
