Learning Banks 02 Feb 2017

Hullabaloo Research CIC, a proactive social research group, was co-founded by Christopher to pursue ventures of this type. With PHF funding Hullabaloo will work with a team of service users create a prototype using one specific condition, multiple sclerosis, and explore the conditions necessary to create and launch a full operational Learning Bank.
