Volunteering at a Day Centre for people with head injuries, as part of my research, provides a different perspective on life. You get to hear comments such as "The general public don't understand what head injury is... they look at you and think you're perfectly normal".

Focusing adaptation with climate risk mapping

Description
Climate change is now widely accepted as one of the greatest challenges we all face.
