Let’s connect with working class, black and ethnic minority neighbourhoods in Nottingham the same way we we welcome students every year: new economies, opportunities, jobs for all

When you consider a place like Nottingham it’s full of locked down potential, it’s full of success and failure sitting together on the tram, in offices, in coffee bars, in doctor’s/dentist’s surgeries, shops, walking through the streets, day and night.
