HEFCW Student Wellbeing Grants
A big part of this project was making sure we were explicitly clear with the wider student community on how we are spending this money. Because of this, we have provided a breakdown of our spending so you can see how proactive we have been. If you see any gaps or have any other ideas as to how you’d like this money spent, please do not hesitate to get in touch!
