About Interchange

Interchange is a registered charity (charity number 1038129) and links Higher Education (HEIs) with local voluntary and community organisations (VCOs) from Greater Merseyside for the purpose of research and work-based learning projects. Our aim is to act as a 'broker' between the VCOs who have research and work-based learning project needs and students in Higher Education who are looking for research/work-based learning project opportunities.

Working collaboratively with VCOs and University of Liverpool Students, we offer a wide range of projects to include: evaluation reports and studies; documentary and oral histories; feasibility studies; and community activities.

Interchange welcomes approaches from any HEI to work collaboratively with VCOs and students from all disciplines. 

Interchange is based in one of its partner organisations, the University of Liverpool. Other partners are Liverpool Hope University and Liverpool John Moores University.

If you are a Higher Education Institution and would like further information about becoming a working partner or find out more about how Interchange places students and works collaboratively with VCOs, then please contact the Interchange Co-ordinator.
