Reproductive Justice for All

Rated 5/5 (1 person). Log in to rate.

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.

The Do Something Different programme has really taken off this year. We've had 470 events so far, attended by over 4600 people, and a different event happening every single day. An amazing array of events have been put on by societies, staff and individual students from sports tasters to craft workshops, trips, language learning and much more! Instead of slowing down, the events are only just getting started and it's nearly time for the Do Something Different Festival.

 
mental health isn't waiting
India Edwards welfare, community and diversity officer

Last semester I wrote a blog about the waiting times for counselling services at UEA.
At uea(su) we want the University to make mental health a priority; increasing investment in Student Support Services and expanding the provision for students dealing with mental health issues. If you are struggling with your mental health as a student, the last thing you need is a barrier to support thrown up in the form of an extensive wait for counselling. However, this is the reality at UEA at the moment,
