We love seeing our student groups become more amibitous and achieve more year on year and we want you to be able to use our resources and expertise at the Union to really make your activities the best they possibly can be. Whether this is general guidance or financial support to enhance your activities, your Union is here to help make this happen.
Particularly during the pandemic, the innovative ideas that we've seen from our Clubs & Societies to overcome the challenges and draw positives from being unable to meet physically have been nothing short of remarkable. Our Club Grant will open in the Autumn semester as soon as we elect a full Communities Zone Executive Committee (CZEC)-a committee of elected students to make important decisions around funding and governance. You can run as a 'lay member' for this committee at the first Communities Zone of 2021/22, we'll keep you posted about that. Click here or keep an eye on our social media channels for future meeting dates.
