University of Portsmouth Ageing Network
The University of Portsmouth is proud to be part of this vibrant city. With over 23,000 students and staff working and studying here, we take our responsibilities and relationships with the community seriously. Within UPAN we are keen to work with community partners to maintain good relationships, give back to the community, and have a positive impact on ageing-related issues within our own community.
Community outreach also forms part of our research and education activity streams, where members of the community are actively involved in shaping the projects that we do. We are also working with our community partners to generate student project ideas, in order that the work of our students contributes in some way to the needs and desires of our community.
For example, students in the School of Creative Technologies are creating a website for Portsmouth Pensioners Association as part of their group student project.
