Partnering for Positive Change



‘Partnering for Positive Change’ is the National Centre for Universities and Business’ (NCUB) latest addition to their showcasing series, celebrating and sharing the best of NCUB member collaborations.


This edition showcases how collaborations between UK universities and businesses are improving lives and expanding opportunity within diverse communities. This includes furthering community wellbeing and enhancing the quality and sustainability of social care services across the UK.


Effective collaboration between universities and businesses is critical to improving social mobility and boosting community wellbeing right across the UK. Industry and academia have a vital part to play in helping improve the day-to-day lives of many in our society, from those from underprivileged backgrounds, to those suffering with an illness or disability or those just needing additional support.


NCUB’s overarching aim is to promote, develop and support university business collaboration across the UK. This showcasing booklet, shares how universities and businesses supported staff to improve the lives of those living with dementia in care homes, alleviated symptoms for those suffering with Parkinson’s disease, studied mental health in young people and introduced a range of innovative technologies to improve community care provision.
