We are an outward facing community and the Centre provides a platform for members to engage a range of external stakeholders and partners in co-designed and/or collaborative RKE activities. The work we have done in this context is both local and national.

Partner organisations include local and national faith communities, environmental action groups (Operation Noah), and various bodies within the cultural, educational, and heritage sectors (Wandsworth Council, Cassell Hospital, Spaldings Gentlemen’s Society, Marlow Studios, The National Archives).  We are keen to develop existing partnerships and to explore the possibility of new opportunities.

We have a thriving research student community and train and develop PGRs for a variety of academic and non-academic career paths. We encourage applications from all those who seek to work in the relevant areas.
