In response to the recent closure of local abortion clinics, with the nearest ones now being in King’s Lynn and Thetford, uea|su and UEA are now allowing people to access the Hardship Fund to help pay for travel expenses. We stand in solidarity with anyone who is seeking access to a safe and legal abortion, and as such we are providing a confidential, anonymous and non-judgemental service to support students in this position. If you would like to talk to someone about the Hardship Fund, please go to the Student Support Services reception (situated on the walkway between Union House and the Library entrance) or find out more here.
More details can be found on Welfare Officer Jo Swo’s blog.
You can find the full motion, as passed in Union Council, here.
