Organise a Campaign

The Students' Union encourages autonomous campaigning and recognises that you may wish to run your own campaigns or campaigns as part of a society, or as a group of organised students.  

You can take your campaign to the next step by applying to become a Union-recognised student-led campaign. This will grant your campaign team access to some of the resources that the Students’ Union has to help aid your efforts, including access to the Campaigns fund and a mini-site on our webpages.

If you wish to become a Union-recognised campaign, you can register by completing a campaign form and sending it to the Campaigns Coordinator - hannah.m@sussexstudent.com, after which it will be forwarded to the Students' Union's Executive Committee for consideration. If you want some advice on how to fill out your campaign form, contact the Campaigns Coordinator.

Resources for student-led campaigns

STUDENT-LED CAMPAIGN GROUP HANDBOOK - This handy handbook contains all of the information you could ever wish to know about being a Union-recognised campaign, including how to become Union-recognised and what resources, training and staff are available to you.

CAMPAIGN PLANNER - A useful tool to help you map out your strategy to success, the campaign planner is designed to be a one-stop-shop to help organise your campaign and keep you on track to make real positive change.

Campaigns Fund - The Students' Union has a small fund open to student-led campaign groups who are undertaking campaigns relating to education or student welfare. The fund may be able to help with small extra costs associated with your campaign. For more information and/or to apply contact our Student Voice Manager - natalie.s@sussexstudent.com.

Information and Training - The Students' Union has lots of information and training resources that could be helpful when you are considering, planning or delivering a campaign (health and safety, help with event planning, activities or trips etc.) We also run regular training events and workshops (food safety certificates, risk assessment workshops etc.) that you may be able to take part in. For further information please contact the Student Voice Manager - natalie.s@sussexstudent.com.
