Get Involved

This project aims to build bridges and stimulate debate and in the coming months we will have lots of ways for community organisations, academics and members of the public to get involved. We will regularly update the website with further details and send details to our mailing list.


In 2017 we will be holding 1 day workshops across the UK.

These workshops will offer advice and guidance on partnership working with universities, drawing on the expertise of the Connected Communities Programme, as well as offering open space opportunities for talking through concerns, risks, aspirations and experiences.

Bursaries are available to support attendance. The workshops are open to all who have engaged in university-community collaborations and those interested in exploring the potential opportunities in this area.
