Early this year, Success4All were involved in organising and running the Regional Community University Partnership Event in Newcastle with the UK Community Partner Network.
Here are the reflections of the day from UKCPN.
My lasting feeling from the event was both the enthusiasm and commitment of people who want to collaborate on research – but the huge challenge of finding the right person to get the partnership started. The UKCPN has a guide to help people think this through, and we are in the process of developing a more detailed guide that includes current initiatives.’

Success4All have worked together with Universities from the beginning. The SCAN volunteering department at Newcastle University gave us our first ever group of volunteers in 2006. Working with Newcastle and Northumbria University is at the core of what we do. We train University Students to become Peer Tutors, as we believe that given the right environment, ‘Young People Learn from Each Other’. We do not only recruit volunteers, but have worked together on past projects such as ‘The Real Translation Project’ and ‘Spanish Textiles’ and are keen to come together for research purposes.
