In September, we asked you what your priorities were for Term 1 and what we could do to support them.
From this we identified FOUR key themes that summarised what you told us to prioritise, they were…
1. Cost of Living
2. Wellbeing & Support
3. Belonging & Inclusivity
4. Campaigning & Engagement
At the beginning of term 2, we asked you again to ensure that we were prioritising the right work that would have the greatest impact and what we could do to better support you.
You told us that you needed more support to help you navigate through the Cost of Living Crisis. You also wanted us to lobby the University for more tangible support.
Getting the £2 meal on St Luke’s and campaigning for the expansion to ‘Budget Breakfasts’
Future student business markets

You told us you wanted us to do more to support you, especially surrounding wellbeing in the form of more preventative measures. You also asked us for more support with academic matters.
