Bristol Hub is a student-led group at the University of Bristol, offering practical volunteering, skilled placements, project incubation and events. We support you to learn about issues, connect with each other and tackle social problems.
Together, we have the power and potential to shape a better world.
The Bristol Guide to Local Living
Produced by students from across the Bristol Hub, this guide provides a load of practical ideas to allow you to enjoy everything Bristol has to offer whilst living in a way that promotes fairness in trade, environmental and animal welfare and sustainability. The guide also serves as a directory for many local ethical groups/campaigns/shops/services and gives information and support for volunteering, campaigning and taking action towards positive social change.
Bristol Hub was founded in 2008 by a group of students who felt the need for better coordination between student charitable groups at the University of Bristol.. The vision was of a network that would connect students working across different causes so they could share insight, knowledge, and experience, thereby making all groups more effective. As more and more groups expressed interest in becoming involved with Bristol Hub it became evident that there were many other ways in which student charitable groups could be having a bigger impact. Bristol Hub saw a lack of resources for students interested in charitable activity as a key issue and sought to address it.
Bristol Hub quickly expanded on its activities to provide training sessions, run conferences on social and environmental issues, and help students find jobs in the third sector.
Today Bristol Hub reaches over 6,200 students every week with information about opportunities to get involved in, provides weekly training sessions and speaker events, runs a student consultancy project and an internship scheme, and runs three conferences per year - to name but a few of our activities. Our committed team of students is supported by two full-time members of staff.
We are part of the national charity Student Hubs, a network of Hubs in universities across England.
