Winchester Hub is a local branch of the national charity, Student Hubs. Our team of volunteers and staff work in partnership with the University of Winchester to support students to tackle social challenges, learn about issues and connect with each other. Read all about what Winchester Hub achieved in the 2019-20 academic year and how you can get involved!

This year we launched the Social

Innovation Programme (SIP), a sixweek

student consultancy course

where students work with social

impact organisations and mentors

from IBM to come up with innovative

solutions to problems they are

experiencing. They conduct both

primary and secondary research,

alongside training sessions to

develop their professional skills.

Thanks to extra funding from the

University of Winchester, we were

able to run a summer cohort of SIP

specifically to help social

organisations with COVID-19 related

issues. This included how to make

online spaces accessible to those

with learning needs and how to use

a space alongside COVID-19

government regulations.

This year we worked with:

Winnall Rock School

WinAcc

Age Concern Hampshire

Child Health International

St. Johns Winchester

Winchester GoLD

Wickham Community Centre

Wessex Green Hub

Compassionate Cuppa

"It gave me a chance to

look at my own ways of

working and change... it

also help[ed] me share

the skills I have."
