Positive Impact Partners (PIP) Programme at the University of Leeds

The Positive Impact Partners (PIP) Programme is a flagship programme by the University of Leeds, which connects local third sector organisations together with University staff to create collaborative partnerships.

This Programme is a core element of Leeds’ Sustainability Strategy to be a Positive Partner to Society and is therefore supported at the highest level. Leadership actively champion the Programme because of the opportunities it provides to build capacity to deal with societal issues, creates social value in local communities, and increases participation in strategic research projects with third sector partners.

The Programme recruited over 100 partners in year 1, which led to the creation of 40 new strategic partnerships. The ongoing data and partnership case studies collated, prove the success of the programme which continues to support new partnerships year on year.
