LiNCHigher, in partnership with SCiP Alliance, have launched the Lincolnshire and East Midlands SCiP Alliance Hub which the RAF Families Federation have been delighted to support.  LiNCHigher is part of the Officer for Students Uni Connect project.

The SCiP Alliance’s mission is as follows:

“To support education practitioners to champion the progression of the children of military personnel, so that they can make informed and confident transitions through further and higher education into thriving adult lives and careers.”

The Hub, a collaboration of leading education professionals and those supporting Service Children in the region, offers the opportunity to support Service children at a local level and provide advice and guidance to teachers and educational institutions, developing and sharing best practice.

Jess Darnell, Senior Project Officer at LiNCHigher said:

“It was an exciting launch and great to see such dedicated individuals attending. Since then we have had more interested parties requesting to join the hub looking to network both internally and externally and continue to share good practice. The event certainly made everyone reflect on the experiences faced by Military families and as a group we now look forward to creating positive action across both regions and nationally.

The launch of this new hub allows LiNCHigher to continue its commitment to support children of service families with a range of Higher Education resources. This Hub also puts us in a fantastic position to provide support and guidance to teachers and educational institutions.  We’ll be launching our SCiP Alliance resources page shortly. In the meantime you can download the SCiP Alliance Thriving Lives Toolkit FINAL which is designed to help children of service families in school.”

Louise Briggs, RAF FF Education and Childcare Policy Advisor is a member of the Hub

“It’s great to see a SCiP Hub in the region and I am excited to see how it can offer the opportunity for all those working to support Service children and young people to collaborate and share ideas, from within the area and from other regional hubs in the SCiP network. 

This is really good news for our many families across Lincolnshire and the East Midlands with more resources and events eventually available for those supporting our children and young people.

Our thanks go to LiNCHigher for taking the lead and getting the Hub off the ground.”
