Community University Partnership Programme Brighton

Community University Partnership Programme Brighton

TheĀ Community University Partnership Programme (CUPP) at the University of Brighton was instrumental in establishing Boingboing as a collaborative network and as a social enterprise. CUPP provided the funding for knowledge exchange events and workshops in our early days. We tested out the ideas for our Resilient Therapy book with those groups. Cupp has also supported the development of the resilience Communities of Practice that have occurred at Brighton and overall has been a huge supporter of the co-productive nature of our work.

Angie Hart, Director of Boingboing and who is also the Academic Director for CUPP, says:

“All of my research is co-productive, and as the academic director of the Community University Partnership Programme I have expertise in applying insights from research within the context of Communities of Practice (CoPs). CoPs bring people with a shared passion together across, not only different agencies and disciplines, but also organisational forms and status boundaries, including service users and their carers. I am passionate about using research insights to inform practice developments and vice versa.”

We are as close as a separate organisation can be to the University of Brighton, especially the School of Health Sciences. It really helps our community-university partnership working to have so many people with multiple ‘hats’ or identities, dancing cheek to cheek, so to speak.
