Your Manchester Fund supports a wide variety of projects and programmes across campus to enrich the academic and wider university experience for the student body as a whole.
To date, projects such as Manchester RAG, the University Counselling Service and Student Action have been funded to a total of £307,500. Most recently, the Library, Careers Service and Disability Support Office have benefited from alumni generosity.
Your Manchester Fund has provided support to the library to create a social learning environment serving refreshments to students studying throughout the day and on into the evening hours. The Library Lounge is a very popular addition with students and has even facilitated a change in waste management policy for the library as a whole. As part of the changes in the library, a significant investment has been made in recycling facilities, replacing general litter bins with alternative, colour coded receptacles enabling library users to recycle paper, plastic bottles, glass and cans.
In addition to the library space, Your Manchester Fund has provided a minibus to facilitate Manchester Leadership Programme (MLP) students getting to and from their volunteering projects easily and safely, providing greater accessibility to community locations across Greater Manchester and opening up opportunities for wider community and school-based opportunities.
The Fund has equipped the Careers Service with a podcasting facility which allows students to visualise and experience potential employment environments and get first hand advice from today’s business leaders in order to support their employment applications and decisions on future careers.
Funding has also been allocated to DisabledGo Access, a brand new internet service designed to provide the best possible information for the 2,800 students across campus with a registered disability so they can quickly identify and draw on the ever-widening range of support resources across campus.
