First page of the emerging themes and insights report from Workshop 1

On 7 May 2020, the Building Connections: Schools as Community Hubs ARC Linkage Project team facilitated an ambitious stakeholder workshop via Zoom. This workshop was the first of six that will inform the proposed Schools as Community Hubs Development Framework. The framework will address the planning, design, governance, management and use of shared or co-located facilities on school sites, offering practical guidelines for navigating the ‘obstacle course’ that stakeholders commonly encounter when undertaking hub projects.

This report is a distillation of emerging themes and insights from this workshop. If you have any queries and feedback, please contact Sarah Backhouse ( to let us know and follow us on Twitter.
