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. Winchester 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 March-May 2020 Programme. Learn more here and register your interest by contacting Sorcha at email@example.com.
Pioneer is a 6-week course for students to build knowledge and understanding of what a social enterprise is, how it works and how to start setting one up. Each course we have on session where we visit social enterprise's in town and learn more about what they do and how they came about.
If you would be interested in widening your community awareness and hosting students for an hour one week please contact our Programmes Manager Liz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have an activity you are running that addresses a social issue here in Winchester and are looking for volunteers Give It a Go is our one-off volunteering programme! We are always looking for new opportunities to get the students engaged in social action, such as helping a community garden, litter picking and even clothes swaps! Please get in contact with Sorcha at email@example.com if you are looking for some volunteers.
LinkAges tackles elderly isolation by connecting students with opportunities to engage with local older people in the community. If you run a care home or have an idea to reduce social isolation in the older generation please contact our Projects Officer Helen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Schools Plus is where we engage our students with local schools in Basingstoke, Eastleigh and Winchester to help school students achieve their academic potential. This is done through tutoring, acting as lession aids and leading extra-curricular clubs. Please contact Helen at email@example.com to find out more.
Once a week our students run a free drama workshop in a local community centre to increase access to the arts for young people. We are looking to expand across Winchester and open more classes! If you have a local community space that is lacking accessible drama classes for younger people please contact Helen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you still would like to be involved but don't know how please still feel free to contact us at email@example.com to see how we can work together!
