Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus championed his concept of social business as a way to release deprived people from the ‘prison’ of welfare at a special summit hosted by the University of Salford on Saturday 18 May.

Yunus also praised the University for announcing the creation of the Salford Centre for Social Business, a new body which will work in partnership with local, national and international groups and organisations to develop social business research, teaching and projects.
