Get Involved


In 2017 we held 1 day workshops across the UK for those with experience of university-community collaborations and those interested in exploring the potential opportunities in this area.

Building on these workshops, we are working with Runnymede Trust and local partners to develop regional networks to support Black and minority ethnic community organisations to develop projects, build capacity and link-up with other organisations. Stepping into a community leadership role may be exhilarating and exciting but it will also be lonely and overwhelming.

The Common Cause Networks will be set up in Birmingham, Cardiff, Glasgow, Liverpool and Nottingham. Each network will offer peer support, expert speakers, case study presentations, and a safe space for people as they think through, plan and then take action to realise their ideas.
