How does it work?
The service is available to institutions on a subscription model. It offers economies of scale by giving access to data, analysis and research to help them target, monitor and evaluate their outreach activities.
The project is being rolled out through new geographical hubs linked to a central team at the University of Kent. Trained staff in the hubs will work with colleagues in institutions new to HEAT to help them develop their capabilities as they join the service.
Currently 32 institutions use the service.
How to join
Interested institutions are encouraged to contact HEAT directly to find out more about how their widening participation work can be supported by the service.

We have provided funding to support and oversee the roll-out of the service, but the sector will manage the service for subscribed institutions.
We have provided £3 million from 2014 to 2017.
Our funding will enable the roll-out of the service - managed by the University of Kent - over three years so that more institutions throughout England can benefit.
