Our Community Foundation is a Sport Leadership & Workforce Development Programme run by the Students’ Union. Since 2013, we have provided a platform for students to make a positive difference in the local community of Tower Hamlets. As well as supporting the community, we aim to enhance the student experience and increase employability.
Students can engage in a number of ways by facilitating physical activity with local schools and sport clubs, tackling issues through our Social Cohesion Sport Programme and supporting our Sports Camp during school holidays. All students can benefit through our Leadership Academy with rewards such as certificates, clothing and funded sport qualifications.
In 2015 we were nominated by Times Higher Education in the category of "Outstanding Contribution to the Local Community", as well as by London Sport in the category of "Bigger and Better Workforce” and shortlisted for the “Workforce Programme of the Year” at the BUCS Awards 2017. In 2018 we won a QMUL Community Engagement Award.
