Will this be a distraction for NUS?

No, the scheme is expected to operate organically, using the existing infrastructure. It has been designed to ensure that no additional human or other resource is required further to the existing team – this is so that nothing within this scheme can dilute the impact from each donation. The shared infrastructure in NUS UK will ensure the delivery, and if the scheme grows very large, this may be reviewed, but campaigning effectiveness is at the heart of the Students’ Urgent Action Fund.
