Societies Federation Meeting

The SocFed Meetings are held every month. This is where societies are ratified by the Students' Union (officially become Brighton Students' Union societies) and where bids for grants and loans are discussed and awarded.

The Societies Federation Committee is a group of 6 elected students who decide on how Students’ Union funds are spent on society activities. These students are society members who are elected at the start of the academic year at the Societies Federation AGM. Anyone in a society can stand for the Soc Fed Committee.

For this academic year, the Soc Fed budget is £8,000 - this money is available for any ratified society to bid for. At the start of the year, around 40 societies received a start-up grant of £50, which also came from this budget. Start up grants are awarded to new societies, and for existing societies attending training and the SocFed AGM in April/May
