Support Northumbria students facing hardship

Make this Giving Tuesday matter for Northumbria students 

Giving Tuesday is a day of global giving celebrated each year on the 29th November. It is a day when everyone everywhere can do something to support important causes. We are asking our alumni, and other supporters of the University, to donate the cost of a cup of coffee to help Northumbria’s most vulnerable students. 

Students from disadvantaged backgrounds are one of the groups bearing the brunt of the cost-of-living crisis. As a result, they are more likely to:

• Abandon their degree to find full-time work • Take on more part-time work • Cut back on food • Struggle with stress and anxiety

At Northumbria, we’ve seen a 69% increase in requests for financial assistance and a 30% rise in students accessing our foodbank and, consequently, our hardship fund is struggling to keep up.

                                                This is why we are asking you to support our Hardship Campaign this Giving Tuesday.

Can you make a difference today?
