We love seeing our student groups become more ambitious and achieve more year on year. We want you to be able to use our resources and expertise at the Students' 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.

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), the committee of elected students to make important decisions around funding and governance. The committee is chaired by the Vice President Communities and includes the elected Students' Union President, International Officer, Housing Officer, Arts Officer, Sustainability Officer, Media Officer, Co-Curricular Officer and 5 'lay' or ordinary members. You can become a 'lay member' for this committee at the first Communities Zone meeting of the academic year.
