    Abstract

    This is the fifth in a series of short thematic summaries in which we share what we have heard and learnt from the people that have taken part in our research into The Robertson Trust's Women’s Centre Programme. This thematic summary builds on our third thematic summary which reflected on both processes of delivery and dynamics of participation in Heart and Soul, but is designed to capture the transition from Heart and Soul (as documented in Issue 3) to Heart and Soul Hub, and thus the revised approach and divergent aims, rather than the impacts and outcomes of the original model, as previously reported. In so doing, it provides an overview of the journey of Heart and Soul from its inception, to its transition to Heart and Soul Hub, noting the changes to the physical space, governance and approach, the dynamics of participation, and its contribution to the community.
