There is an increasing focus on the need to support the development of skills and learning for Community Regeneration. Many voluntary organisations and public bodies are now working alongside community groups to develop projects or to make things happen locally. The Creative Communities Unit provides an evolving range of courses, projects and services to support local workers and community members to develop the skills to work more effectively in local communities.

As the University makes strides to enhance its reputation through visible, well-communicated, responsible business activity it will establish a two- to three- year working arrangement with 2 charitable organisations.  These partnerships will enable:

  • Employee volunteering on-site events
  • Individual measured fundraising 
  • Student/staff volunteering off-site opportunities 
  • Branded endorsements 
  • Charity talks to students 
  • Career event support
