OfS Uni Connect Programme (formerly NCOP)
Aimhigher London, together with AccessHE and Linking London, comprise the London NCOP. As part this partnership, Aimhigher London brokers progressive and sustained outreach activity to support the government’s social mobility goals to increase the number of young people from underrepresented groups who go into higher education.

Uni Connect: Outreach Hubs
As part of the London NCOP, Aimhigher London are leading on the development of outreach hubs covering 14 boroughs in South London: Bexley, Bromley, Croydon, Greenwich, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Kingston, Lambeth, Lewisham, Merton, Richmond, Southwark, Sutton and Wandsworth.
The aim of the hubs is to help teachers and advisers to find out about the outreach activity which is available in an area; proactively support schools and colleges in areas of low participation to access higher education; and provide a platform for other local collaborative activity.
