Campaigning is something you can get involved with while at University. If you feel something is unfair, there needs to be more awareness around an issue, or you want to change the way we do things, you can run a campaign. Campaigning can be done in many different ways, from an open letter, submitting a motion to introduce a new policy, or holding an event to promote services. Take a look below for just a few of the campaigns your Sabbatical and Campaign Officers are working on...


Got an idea for a campaign? Get in touch with


General Election 2024

On 4th July 2024, the UK will go out and vote for who they want to represent them in the UK Parliament. All eligible Cardiff students will have the chance to exercise their democratic right and decide who leads the UK government. Our mission is to get as many eligible students as possible to register to vote, and ensure they use their vote on the 4th July. 


Gender Identity Fund

The Cardiff Students’ Union Gender Identity Fund was an idea initiated by Student Senate in 2023, it called for the creation of a fund which could be accessed by transgender students for gender affirming items. The idea behind this is to aid those in the process of getting longer term support and care, by financing the purchase of items which can assuage gender dysphoria in the short term. 


Women's Month

As we embark on this special month, we invite you to join us in celebrating the extraordinary women of Cardiff who have not only shaped our past but continue to inspire our future. We follow the international theme of "Inspire Inclusion," a powerful call to embrace diversity, foster unity, and recognize the incredible contributions of women from all walks of life.



The AlrightMate? campaign is all about encouraging students to check-in with their mates and start those all important conversations. Men's mental health and wellbeing can often be ignored or not seen as a priority and we want that to change. By checking-in and looking out for each other students can often be the first to spot the signs that something isn't alright.


Shag Safe

Shag Safe is our sexual health campaign which aims to provide you with information about safe sex! SHAG stands for Sexual Health, Awareness and Guidance, and our aim is to provide useful information so you can keep yourself sexually healthy. Whether that is information on contraception and PrEP or how to collect your free STI testing kits, we have got you covered!


Safer Nights @ Cardiff

Safer Nights @ Cardiff looks at student behaviours and how students can look after each other when on nights out, and what more we can do to keep each other safe. Another part of this campaign will be looking to all clubs in the city. We’re proud of what we do as a Students’ Union to keep people safe in our venues, and we want to ensure that spans across the rest of the city.


Student Volunteering Week

Student Volunteering Week will be taking place from Monday 5 February until Friday 9 February. This is the perfect opportunity to find out how you can take action and support a wide range of volunteering projects across Cardiff.


BMA Industrial Action

The British Medical Association (BMA) are in an ongoing fight for full pay restoration, pushing back against pay erosion over a significant number of years. The Students’ Union has a strong history of supporting industrial action in the best interests of Cardiff University students.


Spring In Your Step

Spring is now in full swing, and your officers have decided to put together a fun set of tips and challenges so that you can all start being active and taking care of ourselves. Your officers understand that fitness and wellbeing are different for everyone, and that’s why they've planned a variety of activities and resources for you to follow along. Throughout the month, we’ll focus on getting active, getting mindful and getting outside.


Pink Week

October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM), and this year we are turning Cardiff pink! BCAM is an opportunity to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, and the importance of checking your chest regularly, and most importantly getting to know your normal!


Revision Aid

Our Officers are here to help you study with Revision Aid! Visit one of our stalls around campus for a hot drink, or take a look at some tips for making the most of your revision.


LGBTQ+ History Month

LGBTQ+ History month is so important not only to celebrate how far we have come as a society, but to also acknowledge the struggle and sacrifices of those who helped us get where we are now. There is still a huge war ahead of us, but it is important to celebrate our community and all the progress that we have mad. We hope we are able to spread more awareness about LGBTQ+ history month through all these events.


Industrial Action 2022/23

On the 26th January, the University and College Union (UCU) announced that the latest negotiations with the University and College Employers Association (UCEA) had fallen short in the dispute over pay and working conditions. With this announcement, the 18 days of strike action across February and March were confirmed. Whilst the SU has a stance of supporting the strikes and lobbying for refunds as mandated by our students, we hear the voices and concerns of students about their education, and the consequences that the 18 days of strike action will have. You can read more about Industrial Action here, including the events organised and actions taken by your Sabbatical Officers.


Placement Travel for Medical Students

One of the pressures on medical students is the placement travel model as outlined in the Clinical Placements Travel Policy, a long-standing issue that pre-dates these pressures but contributes to them. We chose to carry out a survey to gain a better understanding of the issue and identify ways in which the policy can be improved, to help alleviate these pressures on students. We have summarised our findings and used the responses to form a set of recommendations to the School of Medicine (and, if necessary, the University).


Speak Week

Speak Week is an annual campaign run by the Student Voice team, with support from Sabbatical Officers and Student Academic Reps. The aim of the campaign is to gather as much insight as possible from Cardiff students about what they would choose to change about their university experience, and what they find valuable and would elect to keep. The Students' Union uses this data every year to lobby the university for necessary changes, and to ensure your Officers know what issues are affecting you the most.


Cost of Living

We understand that the current Cost of Living Crisis is likely to affect the health, wellbeing, and academic experience of Cardiff students. Your Sabbatical Officers are working to ensure that a wide variety of measures are implemented to help alleviate some of the hardship faced by students. You can read more here, including the initial list of recommendations to the university.


Sober Socials Week

Sober Social Week aims to highlight the importance of our clubs and societies hosting inclusive socials that appeal to members who may not be interested in drinking and provide a more relaxed and welcoming setting for all members.


Feed Your Flat: The Essentials

As part of the Students' Union's Cost of Living campaign, your Sabbatical Officers have brought back their Feed Your Flat campaign. Feed Your Flat: The Essentials focuses on bringing students the essentials they require to cook basic meals at home, with general supplies and easy recipes available.


Student Wins

The elected Sabbatical and Campaign Officers work hard to make positive changes to the experience of all Cardiff University students, and are supported by the work of Student Senators, Student Academic Representatives, and many more student volunteers who work with the Union. Take a look at some of the Student Wins they have achieved - and if you have achieved your own Student Win, make sure to let us know!


Black History Month

October marks Black History Month, an incredible opportunity for us to commemorate the history of Black communities and celebrate the immense contribution that people of African, Arab, Asian and Caribbean heritage make to humanity. In the student movement - and more widely - the term "Black" is a positive, political term born out of the struggle for equality. It is used to unify all Black communities in the campaign to end racism and under-representation. Find out more here


Heath Park on Tour

We're introducing a brand-new placement support project. The aim of this project is to support you during your placement experience  and to grow your student community whilst away from Cardiff. We understand the placement experience can be stressful and we want to do something small to give you the chance to unwind and take a break.  Heath Park on Tour will see us putting on a series of activities for you, where you are, on placement. These activities will be free and are aimed at bringing you together with other students. Book on here



PrEPare is a sexual safety campaign which aims to provide students with information to have sex safely. Whether that's information on what is PrEP and how to get it, or information on how to order your free STI testing kit, we have got you covered.



Georgia Spry, your VP Sport and Athletic Union President has launched the new DisABILITY Sport campaign to raise awareness of disabilities in sport and to help students with disabilities feel welcome. Disability is not a barrier and we want everyone to know they can take part in sport at Cardiff University.

Iawn Mêt

Pwrpas ymgyrch Iawn Mêt? yw annog myfyrwyr i siarad gyda'u ffrindiau a dechrau'r trafodaethau bwysig hynny am iechyd meddwl.

Gweithredu Diwydiannol 2022/23

Ar y 26ain o Ionawr fe wnaeth yr Undeb Prifysgolion a Cholegau (UCU) cyhoeddi fod eu trafodaethau diweddaraf gyda'r Prifysgol a Chymdeithas Cyflogwyr Colegau (UCEA) heb fod yn llwyddianus wrth ddatrys materion tâl ac amodau gwaith.

Teithio ar Leoliadau ar gyfer Myfyrwyr Meddygol

Un o'r heriau ar gyfer myfyrwyr meddygol yw'r model teithio ar leoliadau fel sydd wedi'i amlinelly gan y Polisi Teithio ar Leoliadau Clinigol, problem hirdymor sydd wedi pryderu myfyrwyr ers cyn i gyfnodau fel yr argyfwng costau byw rhoi pwysau pellach arnynt. Fe wnaethom ddewis cynnal arolwg er mwyn gwella ein dealltwriaeth o'r broblem ac adnabod ffyrdd o wella'r polisi, er mwyn lleihau'r pwysau ar fyfyrwyr. Rydym wedi crynhoi ein canfyddiadau a'u defnyddio er mwyn gosod argymhellion i'r Ysgol Feddygaeth (ac, os bydd angen, i'r Brifysgol).

Mae'r Wythnos Siarad yn ymgyrch blynyddol wedi'i rhedeg gan dîm Llais y Myfyriwr, gyda chefnogaeth y Swyddogion Sabothol a Chynrychiolwyr Academaidd Myfyrwyr.
