Newsletter nº35
September 2011

Now the holidays are over our Newsletter returns, packed full of events, news and projects related to Design for All, some completed and others due to take place in the coming months. We hope that you enjoy the newsletter and find it useful; and, as always, we would be delighted to receive your feedback and suggestions for improvement. With best wishes from all the Foundation team, including new recruit Madeleine Gray, whose previous post was at the Centre for Accessible Environments and who has joined the Foundation in Barcelona to extend our work in the sphere of communications.
