The Communities Committee acts as the bridge between student and local community. The committee organises campaigns on a range of issues such as housing, transport, workers' rights, student/community engagement and more! In 16/17, the Communities Committee worked on building a schools outreach programme, supported the Cut the Rent campaign in lobbying for cheaper halls, and launched a student workers campaign to support students that work part-time (or even full-time) while they study. Working together with different community groups and trade union branches, the Communities Committee seeks to get students involved in the local communtiy - be that through volunteering, or political organising.
The members of the Communities Committee for 2017/18 are as follows:
Chair: Lewis Macleod (AUSA Communties Officer)
Vice Chair: Kevin Mathew
Diego Perojil Morata
Isabel Arce Zelada
