Working with universities

Collaborating with universities to improve access and participation. Together we can make the biggest possible difference.

Villiers Park has been supporting disadvantaged young people for over 100 years. In this time we have helped tens of thousands of young people to develop their skills and knowledge, and we have always adapted with the times to provide help and guidance where and how it is most needed. We are experts in working with young people from backgrounds where they have significant barriers to overcome in order to participate in higher education.

This, in collaboration with your expertise in delivering high-quality higher education, can have a lasting impact on the young people we work with.


How we can support you

Broadly speaking, we can collaborate in two ways: by supporting you to develop your widening participation offer, and by supporting you to reach disadvantaged and underrepresented students.

Reaching underrepresented students

  • Share your opportunities with more students
  • Deliver your content to more students
  • Create a bespoke programme of activities for defined student groups or specific geographical locations

Knowledge exchange

  • Develop a robust, bespoke evaluation process
  • Introduce a reflexive culture through organisational coaching
  • Equip your team with the skills to coach young people from underrepresented backgrounds
