Voyage was invited to support the proposed development of a Civic Innovation Hub by the Healthy Living Centre in Shoreditch. Our graduates were commissioned by TSIP to carry out action research in the local area to find out if there is an appetite for the proposal and what key aspects of its operation had the most appeal to local people.
Our 5 students were trained on action research principles, customer care, dealing with people with less time and were able to generate over 60 contributions over the course of a few hours in Hoxton Market. We discovered
1. most local people have never heard of the Healthy Living Centre
2. the Hub should have a strong focus on reducing crime and mental health
3. the Hub should priorities business support and career development
4. it was also expressed that local community organisations “sometimes” really work well together to address challenges.

Voyage sends a massive thanks to TSIP and Hackney Healthy Living Centre team..
