Welcome to the Winchester Hub

2019-20 Impact Report, an

opportunity to showcase and

celebrate our students and their

fantastic work within our local

community, while providing a

space to reflect on the future

direction of Winchester Hub.

This year, Winchester Hub has

seen change and growth at an

unprecedented pace. We have

been able to pilot our successful

Social Innovation Programme

(SIP) which saw students come

together to help local

organisations find innovative

solutions to complex problems. A

programme that came into its own

during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We also saw our long-term

volunteering projects LinkAges,

Schools Plus, and Woolly Matters

partner with new members in our

community and Youth Theatre

reach even more young people.

Further, we saw the funding and

generation of 3 new social

enterprise ideas from Winchester

University students.

Our student committee continued

to show their passion and hard

work, running training sessions

and adapting events to new online

formats in light of lockdown.

Importantly, they carried out their

roles with wellbeing at the

forefront, making conscious

efforts to check in with each other

and create a supportive

environment where all volunteers

can thrive.

Now, more than ever, the support

that our volunteers and staff have

extended to our community, and

the extent to which we have all

adapted to change, has shown

the importance of social action

and compassion in flourishing


Why is this important?

At Winchester Hub, we believe

that students have the power and

potential to shape a better world.

Through connecting them to

social action opportunities while at

University, they have the

opportunity to foster a passion for

social action that will lead to them

being active citizens for life.

We provide long-term

volunteering, skilled placements,

and incubation work for students

to get involved in. Not only does

this help the students but also our

local communities, creating a

double benefit where both can

generate positive change.

Winchester Hub is a branch of Student Hubs, a registered charity in England and Wales, number 1122328.
