The government has ignored the needs of students throughout the pandemic. Together, we’re changing that...
At the end of 2020, we won £20m for student hardship in England. At the beginning of 2021, we won an additional £50m.
Across the UK, we have successfully secured over £174 million for student support. This will go a long way in supporting students in the short-term, to overcome financial pressures brought on by the pandemic.
But now, we're campaigning for long-term structural change. We're calling on the government to re-introduce Maintenance Grants.
We know that #StudentsDeserveBetter than their treatment during the pandemic. Now is the time for the governments and universities to recognise this too.
