Running a Club, Society, SLS or Association can be a scary thing, and often a very daunting challenge. But fear not; support is at hand to help you manage and run successful Student Groups.
This is your online resource on everything you may need to know, from how to bank a cheque to publicising that big event. If you do need more information, some help or just someone to chat an idea through with then please do give one of the Activities Team an email, call, tweet or Facebook message.
Policies & Procedures
Activities Laws - The Activities Laws are a detailed guide to how the Activities Department supports your Group and how you should lead your Group.
Athletic Union Social and Behaviour Policy - Committees | Individuals
Guild of Societies Social Policy
The Committee Members version of the Social Policy gives information on how to run socials safely and effectively. The Individual Members version gives information to members as to what they should expect from socials and what is expected of them. It is highly recommended that you familiarise yourself with both versions.
