Cambridge Hub work with local organisations to make a positive impact in our community. Get in touch to see if we can help your organisation!
At Cambridge Hub, we are committed to making valuable impact in local communities and this means partnering with local organisations to create social action. Whether you have an opportunity our students would enjoy, would benefit from a skilled placement service or have a fantastic new project idea, we would love to hear from you. Read more below about all the opportunities we have for you to partner with us.
The SIP is a 6 week consultancy project, pairing teams of students with a charity or social enterprise to work on a challenge brief provided by you. Cambridge Hub will support you to create a robust brief, as well as train the students to consult for you. We are currently accepting registrations of interest for our October-December 2019 programme. Learn more here.
We’re launching a new programme! Impact Labs trains teams of University of Cambridge PhD researchers in key impact measurement skills so that they can support local youth organisations to achieve their goals. We'll run two cohorts in 2020. The programme especially targets PhD researchers in Arts, Humanities and the Social Sciences, but all PhDs are welcome to apply. Send an email to [email protected] to find out more and to get involved.
We are always looking for community partners to set up new projects and initiatives with our students. Previous examples include the Edible Garden, a collaborative multigenerational community garden set up in Murray Edwards college along with Transition Cambridge and Dementia Compass.
We are particularly excited about community partners that bring a concern or problem to us, and are interested in co-developing student-led sustainable solutions. If you think your organisation could benefit from student volunteers or a specific initiative, write to Susana at [email protected], and let's see what we can do together!
