BURSARIES BOOST

-Strive to get funds to help students with university trips and language classes. Many departments are insufficiently funded, meaning students are left out of enriching opportunities and are disadvantaged.  

INTERSECTIONAL INCLUSIVITY 

-Working with BME and Women’s officer! Joint events to understand why the interplay of these groups leads to a greater disadvantage.

TERMLY TALKS AND EVENTS

-Careers; networking events to help increase the confidence and contacts of those who need, helping them after university. 

-Talks about class and mobility to develop a deeper understanding about the topic. 

-Termly focus and support groups to state issues and ambitions.

CHANGE THE NARRARTIVE 

-Being working class isn’t intrinsically bad but has been portrayed as inferior. This needs to stop. I want to debunk this saviour attitude of how we must ‘rescue the working class’, and rather focus on our strengths too and what we have to bring to the table!
