Students Deserve Better

 

The economic disruption caused by Covid-19 is pushing students into crisis.

 

Many students have lost zero-hours and part-time jobs – both permanently and during temporary lockdowns. Other students can no longer rely on support from family members because they are now experiencing their own Covid-related financial struggles. And others fall into gaps that exist within the student support system.

 

We believe that students deserve better. We are campaigning alongside the National Union of Students (NUS) for improved financial support for students. In the short term, we want to see the Scottish Government commit more emergency funding for students in 2021.

 

You can help!

 

Email your MSPs and ask them to support students in the Scottish budget. NUS has a simple email tool that automates this for you so you can make an impact in two minutes or less! Email them here: https://www.nus-scotland.org.uk/email-your-msp

 

You can also sign up to updates, so you can be involved in campaigning for longer-term systemic changes to the student support system.
