Community Foundation

Our Community Foundation is a Sport Leadership & Workforce Development Programme run by the Students’ Union. This year we're celebrating our 10th anniversary, 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.

The programme has been recognised with various nominations for regional and national awards including:

  • Times Higher Education: Outstanding Contribution to the Local Community - Shortlisted 2015
  • London Sport: Bigger and Better Workforce Award - Shortlisted 2015
  • BUCS: Workforce Programme of the Year Award - Shortlisted 2017 & 2020
  • QMUL Centre for Public Engagement: Community Engagement Award - Winner 2018
  • London Sport: Enhancing the Workforce Award - Shortlisted 2020
