We aim to help practitioners create and maintain well-designed, good quality places. We do this by offering training, advice, networking events, design surgeries and online resource.

UDL is supported by Transport for London and we work very closely with these organisations, helping to ensure our training and networking services reflect the most up to date policies, research, best practice examples and funding criteria.
