Cambridge University students work with Cambridge United Community Trust

Students from Cambridge University have supported Cambridge United Community Trust by completing a six week Social Innovation Programme in partnership with Cambridge Hub who co-ordinate Cambridge University students’ charitable activities.

The students were challenged to provide an evaluation of the Disability sports sessions that Cambridge United run each week. The project involved attending sessions, interviewing participants and taking surveys in order to gain a good understanding of the impact that Cambridge United Community Trust are having in this area. Based on this, recommendations on how the programmes can be improved in the future were presented to involved members of staff.

Andy Farrer, Health and Inclusion Officer at Cambridge United Community Trust said: ‘It was brilliant to have a group of such hard working students provide us with recommendations on how we can improve our existing sessions. We would like to thank the students Kayan, Sinead, Toni, Lucy and Regan along with Cambridge Hub for making this project possible.’

The Social Innovation programme that Cambridge Hub run encourages students to address challenging issues that are taking place with local organisations, allowing the students to provide innovative solutions to tackle real ongoing challenges. Cambridge United Community Trust aim to continue working closely with Cambridge Hub and Cambridge University in the future.
