Move towards a permanent and safe solution for on-campus storage for societies.
Establish new and unique ways for societies to advertise and get the recognition they deserve. E.g., “Societies Showcase” event, allowing societies to demonstrate their progress and achievements.
Work towards the creation of a “Societies app”, making it easier for students to find societies and to ensure that they can be notified for society events.
Move towards a flexible, society based approach in the event of another virtual freshers fair.

Ensure that the training welfare officers receive effectively tackles mental health issues and problems stemming from the lack of awareness of invisible disabilities.

Simplifying the booking procedure for external speakers allowing for a quicker turn around and increased opportunities for societies to get speakers in, even at short notice.
Improve the process for starting a new society. Resources will be made more accessible and greater guidance will be provided during the society formation process.
Lobby Sports Officer to allow Sports Federation Membership to be paid back in monthly instalments to support students who struggle to pay the membership and to increase sport takeup as part of a wider mental health strategy.

It is my firm belief that societies are better together. Therefore, I would encourage greater inter-society engagement and activities by establishing new schemes and initiatives such as ‘Top of the Socs’.
Encourage interconnectivity between Warwick societies and other university societies across the UK.
