I would like to invite you to attend the launch of ‘Cyfiawnder-The Social inclusion Research Institute’ at Wrexham Glyndwr University on Thursday 19th January 2023 from 9am to 2pm.
‘Cyfiawnder’ is a new Institute being established at the University with the intention that it will promote research within the Faculty of Social and Life Sciences and become a resource for service providers in Wales to identify, promote and research good practice to address social inclusion.
On the day, there will be an opportunity to learn more about what Cyfiawnder ‘can do for you’ and to meet the directors, members, associates and PhD students associated with the Institute to hear about their work - some of which was described as ‘world leading’ in a recent independent review of research outputs across the UK. The launch will be attended by a wide range of service providers in the criminal justice, housing, health and social care sectors and include an informal networking lunch between 1-2pm for all delegates.
Professor Iolo Madoc-Jones BA, MSc, PhD
