The double benefit Student Hubs has with students and our local communities is only made possible thanks to the funding we receive. Trusts and Foundations have been essential in supporting our operations, allowing us to grow as a charity, and supporting specific activities and costs, empowering the next generation of active citizens.
Our double benefit model is reflective of the youth social action model, where both young people – in our case students – and communities benefit. Our local teams are embedded in their communities and co create high quality impactful activities based on national best practice and impact standards. We deliver a wide range of programmes tackling educational inequalities through near-to-peer academic support, improving social and emotional skill development through mentoring, and reducing social isolation and loneliness through intergenerational activities.
We believe that when students are supported to learn about issues and themselves, connect with each other and their communities and do something to tackle challenges within the framework of our activities both communities and students benefit.
For communities our supportive, collaborative and tailored approach benefits them with new perspectives, added capacity to achieve positive outcomes for the community members they work with and ultimately community cohesion. For students our supportive, inclusive and empowering approach develops their critical engagement, wellbeing, skills for life and student experience.
