'Working together through co-design to make key principles for the CycLink cycling intervention'

Presented by John Carey

John will present findings from the CycLink Co-design Study. This study used an adapted version of experience-based co-design to design key features or 'principles' of a community cycling intervention called CycLink in partnership with young people with disability, parents and cycling providers
