October in the UK is more than just falling leaves and cooler weather; it's a month filled with meaningful awareness days and social action opportunities that resonate with college students. Here is a selection of what to expect:
Black History Month
October marks the start of Black History Month in the UK. Celebrate the achievements of Black individuals and deepen your understanding of racial equity and justice.
Hello Yellow for World Mental Health Day
On October 10th, "Hello Yellow" raises awareness about mental health. Wearing yellow shows support and breaks down stigma.
Hate Crime Awareness week
This October, join the movement during Hate Crime Awareness Week to create a safer, more inclusive environment for all. Stand up against hate and make a positive impact on your campus and in society as a whole.
Breast Cancer Awareness
October in the UK is dedicated to breast cancer awareness. Join us in wearing pink on Friday 20th to promote early detection and support those affected.
As these dates approach, we will provide further information so be sure to keep checking the newsletters.
Being a Student Rep is a fantastic opportunity to get involved with the Students’ Union and make sure your voice is heard. You will be responsible for representing your group on the things that matter, which will help create and build the changes you would like to see. If this is something you like the sound of, talk to your tutor and put your name forward.
