The first Halo Hub was founded in 2014 by an incredible student volunteer named Maya at Durham University. Maya took the initiative to propel our idea for engaging young people in discussions on hidden harms into a working project that is what we now know as the Halo Hub initiative.
Since 2014, we have slowly developed the Halo Hub idea and now have Hubs in universities across the UK, and continue to grow. We are also expanding through the introduction of Halo Hubs overseas, which will enable new environments for students to discuss and challenge cultures of abuse globally.
Our student groups work as societies through the Students Union and are entirely student led and we encourage students to be innovative in their running of the Hubs, coming up with new ways to engage their university community.
