Essentials, our student supermarket, teamed up with our Student Advice Centre to hand out emergency food parcels with 7 days worth of grub to struggling students and families. This was so good, we even got an award.
Last year, we acted on student feedback and opened our very own healthy food outlet, The Salad Box. So far, over 10,000 members have walked through its doors.
We really impressed our mystery shoppers - our shops and services achieved an overall satisfaction rating of 89%. What’s more, 85% of students said the staff in the Union are friendly and helpful.
5,468 freshers were personally welcomed by our Student Exec, who explained to them how our charity is funded and how our money is reinvested into services to support them.
