The Outreach Team
Outreach is dedicated to making sure that actions and events are supported by outreach to the public, and ensuring that when needed, actions have a Welcome Hub / Outreach Hub to provide attendees and the public with information and advice.

The Team and Current Situation
We are a small team of four, but growing. We're looking to expand the scope of work for the team to include different types of outreach and mobilisation. This is being worked out currently. If you're interested in coordinating outreach, we can discuss the changes with you.
As per the usual ways that XR teams works everyone involved in the work gets a full say on everything - so you will too - and we will look to add more people to the team with specific remits, or skills, as the development of future plans progresses.
