Alongside running volunteering opportunities and placements, Winchester Hub incubates new projects. In practice, this means we work with students and community partners to launch innovative ideas which tackle local social and environmental issues. Get in touch and see how we can help at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are interested in social enterprise, then you can also receive special funding and support through the Try It Awards. We work with students at any stage of their project, from just being interested in an issue to having a full project plan for their idea. Our support includes funding, in-person training, written resources, introductions to useful contacts and much more!
