Three ways to support students this #GivingTuesday

Published on

Taking place on Tuesday 29 November, during a time which focuses on spending, Giving Tuesday is a chance to shine a light on giving back to important causes

This year, our focus is supporting students through one of the most difficult winters.

Through the Student Fund, we will be supporting some of the hardest hit students. These include students who are from low-income backgrounds, care-leavers or those estranged from their families. Students with caring responsibilities who can’t work because they might be providing care to a disabled or sick family member. Asylum seekers feeling conflict and disaster worldwide, who haven’t got anyone else to rely on in the UK. Mature students trying to support a family, alongside bettering themselves and their children’s futures.

You can help support students like Julia.

Julia, a second year Law student was in receipt of a grant from the Student Fund, said: “I felt so relieved. I was able to fill the fridge, get my laundry credit and most importantly finally not stress about my living conditions. The support was, and still is, life changing for me."

This year, more and more students are reaching out for support. This is of course, a challenging time for so many and if you are in a position to do so, please consider making a gift to the Student Fund. Your help will ensure no student is left behind in the face of mounting challenges this year.

Your support will help fund:

  • emergency grants for students facing unexpected financial hardship
  • scholarships and bursaries for students who would otherwise miss out
  • support for health and wellbeing, skills development and more.
