Dig-in Box Statement

The Students’ Union at Sussex does not support or condone the inappropriate material distributed on behalf of Brushboxes which was found in the Dig-In Boxes delivered to all Freshers this year.

 

Our Students’ Union promotes equality and providing a safe and inclusive environment for all, and we are let-down by the events that have occured.  

 

Dig-In Boxes deliver boxes to over 130 Universities across the UK, and Sussex Students’ Union is one of many Unions who received this inappropriate artwork. The boxes are not something the Students' Union receives any income for.

 

There was evidently an oversight, from both Dig-In and ourselves. Dig-In did not follow their procedure and checks and the Union wrongly trusted the content of the boxes as we had given clear outlines and guidelines on our ethical stances and what we expected.

 

We have been in contact with Dig-In and we have been assured that this promotional material will no longer be included in their boxes and that mechanisms are put in place so that this cannot occur again in the future.

 

We will be consulting our students about whether to continue our relationship with Dig-In Boxes.
