We are Scotland's future... #SupportUs to succeed
RESULT! Following our Shaping Scotland’s Future campaign during the Scottish Parliament Elections earlier this year the Scottish Government has committed to a full review of student support. But the hard work has only just begun.
We now need to hold the Government to its promise. We want to see the review introduce a right to improved support for Further Education students; improved support throughout the year for Higher Education students and better mental health support for all.
We can’t do this on our own. We need YOU! Let’s tell the Scottish Government to #SupportUs!
Freshers’ weeks are kicking off across the country – and we’ll be coming to as many campuses as possible with new campaign goodies: Get Involved in NUS Scotland leaflets, #SupportUs postcards, sign-up sheets and a selfie frame.
With the #SupportUs campaign postcards you can ask students to tell us what fairer support means to them. The #SupportUs sign-up sheets (download here) give us the opportunity to collect contact details from students who want to get involved in the campaign. And using the #SupportUs selfie frame, you can encourage students to get their pictures taken with pals.
If you’ve not requested we come along to your Freshers’ Fair, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with details of your campus address and we can send you postcards. Please send scanned copies of completed sign-up sheets and postcards to the same address. Alternatively, you can post these back to the NUS Scotland offices, 1 Papermill Wynd, McDonald Road, Edinburgh, EH7 4QL.
Let’s tell the government to #SupportUs!
