Hope Community Engagement
Liverpool Hope University has launched a new Community Engagement Team for 2021 - and here you’ll find everything you need to know about getting involved yourself.
The Team aims to coordinate, co-produce and support a wide variety of community-based projects - whether it’s a charity fundraiser or an initiative or event in the city where volunteers are needed.
It’s open to both students and staff who’d like to contribute and help make a difference.
And the Team is now actively looking for projects to engage with.
If you’ve got an idea or suggestion, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also read about some of the first examples of Community Engagement Team work here.
- If you have an idea of a project or activity that you think will benefit LHU students and / or staff please get in touch with us.
- If you have ideas for projects and activities that you would like to run, we can help.
- If you have a project or event in the City, and need some volunteers, please use The Community Volunteer Projects Registration Form to share the details of your event and we can advertise to the LHU community who can sign up to help you with it.
Community Engagement Team - How it all began
Liverpool Hope University has a 175 year history of commitment to education and community. The educational mission central to Hope is focused on the development of the whole person within the context of our wider community, and we value opportunities to bring people together as part of a city that is steeped with passion and pride for support and unity.
Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Hope community of staff and students has worked together in response to the needs of those on the frontline in the city, raising funds, equipment and much needed resources for those delivering frontline services.
You can read about some of the Covid-19 volunteering projects here.
The Hope Community Engagement Team brings together and builds upon that work started in March 2020 with the Covid-19 Volunteering Team, and their are four main strands to the Community Engagement Team.
The 4 strands are: Hope for Students, Hope for Community, Hope for School Students, and Fundraising & Support Projects.
Through these strands we aim to work together to coordinate, co-produce and support projects, creating opportunities for people to connect, share skills, finding friendships and Support.
The Hope Community Engagement Team will continue to develop and grow as we move forwards beyond the Covid-19 pandemic encouraging connections between the Hope Community and the City.
A brief overview of past and present projects can be found in our Hope Community Engagement Foundation Hour Presentation.
