Each elected officer runs on a manifesto: a collection of ideas and policies that they promise to enact when they are in office. To help you keep track of what each of our four full-time officers get up to, and how far along they are in implementing the ideas that got them elected: we've created this handy manifesto tracker!
All of an officers manifesto points are listed below. The button colour indicates their progress in implementing each of their points. You can click on each button to see a quick log describing what each officer has done to further their goals in each instance.
I will establish an accredited volunteer scheme for students. This will benefit students because volunteering is associated with both increased employability, and improved mental wellbeing.
Set up a student, self-sustained food and toiletries bank. I will reserve a space on each campus for students to donate leftover and unwanted dried food and toiletries for other students who are in need to use.
Stop student housing exploitation. The housing crisis in Brighton is rife, and in order to attempt to ease this, I will ensure that there are affordable options in the new build halls. For those already renting, advertise where they can access help and advice if they feel they’re getting a bad deal.
Organise a calendar of non-alcohol based social events, beginning in Freshers’ fortnight and continuing throughout the academic year. This will ensure all students can experience the culture and fun of our cities.
Secure student lockers and charging stations, particularly for the use of commuter and disabled students.
