Inspiring Communities

Inspiring Communities is our plan for how we can inspire our local communities and how they inspire us.

Our public can be everyone from our family and colleagues to potential funders, businesses, patients, policymakers, the voluntary and private sectors, schools and colleges, or members of our local community.

 can inspire our local communities and how they inspire us. We have a range of strengths that can contribute to the development and wellbeing of our local communities, including our research, sta , students, visitor attractions, public events, business and employment opportunities. And these interactions inspire
us to carry out great teaching, research and engagement.
