Greenwich Community Fund

We are dedicated to empowering student ambition, which is why we’ve created the Greenwich Community Fund.

Greenwich Community Fund

The Community Fund enables a diverse range of student-led projects and activities designed to develop confidence and provide unique experiences and training opportunities.

University is a crucial time for students to cultivate their ideas and skills before entering the workforce.

The cost of living makes it hard for students to go beyond traditional academic activities. Instead, they may juggle paid work and studies, missing out on some of the vital career development experiences on offer.

Working in collaboration with Greenwich Students' Union, the Greenwich Community Fund will remove barriers and enable students to launch creative and innovative projects or enrol in career-enhancing workshops.

After a significant period of lockdowns, restrictions and continued uncertainty, being part of a thriving community is key to integrating fully into university life.

Your contribution will enable students to launch innovative projects focused on co-curricular and civic engagement activity. Each project gives back to the Greenwich community whilst enhancing student employability during these uncertain times. The Fund can cover things like equipment, promotional materials, conference/event costs and training as well as developing a thriving student media.

London is a big city with lots of people but sometimes it’s easy to feel invisible. We are all naturally social animals; I suppose as much as a wolf needs a pack, humans need their groups. Finding the right community for you is important because you will have people to share this journey with people to laugh with, people to have fun with. This is really important because we all lead stressful lives as students and having a community is the best stress buster you’ll find.
