The community sector is being excluded from UK HE’s post-Covid recovery

Now is the time to build a research infrastructure that harnesses and nurtures the energy, creativity and enterprise of the third sector, says letter

On 7 July, the UKRI and the National Centre for Universities and Business announced a new task force to consult on how to build better university-business partnerships as part of the post-Covid recovery plan. The challenges we are facing – profound social inequalities, an urgent need for creative and innovative thinking to regenerate communities, deep changes in behaviour to transition to net zero carbon – however, also require partnerships with the community sector – from social enterprises to voluntary organisations, from charities to mutual aid groups. These groups have been central to building social resilience in the face of Covid-19 (just look at the recent report from Locality for examples of what this sector has done across the UK). And university-community partnerships are at the forefront of regeneration and renewal – demonstrating precisely the high-innovation, cutting-edge thinking that creates real change on the ground.

There is no sign, however, that this sector will be given the same right of consultation on the UK’s research road map that we see being given to businesses. Once again, then, we will be left with a research infrastructure that privileges large commercial organisations and actively excludes the communities on the ground who have real expertise and insight to share in “building back better”. It is time for a change. First, we need serious representation for social enterprises and community businesses on the university-business task force. Second, we need an equivalent task force for university-community collaboration. These requests form the basis of a letter sent this week to Research England and UKRI from 550 academics and civil society organisations.

Now is the time to build a research infrastructure that can really harness and nurture the huge energy, creativity and real enterprise of the third sector.
