Walking together in the name of social justice

WalkTheTalk2015 Interviews before leaving Leicester

Wed, 09/09/2015 - 08:07 -- Rob Parker

Before setting off to walk from Leicester to London some of the participants gathered outside the BPS offices gave their views to Emma Friedmann on the reasons why WalkTheTalk2015 was important and what motivated them to throw on a backpack and walk 100 miles in the name of social justice. Many thanks to Emma for kindly filming and providing this video footage to us!

You can see more video of the people we met on the walk and their stories on our testimonies page.

These give a real insight into the experiences of both the people who are using services and the problems that the services see developing in our society.
