The Students’ Union at UWE have been awarded the NUS Alcohol Impact accreditation.

The Students’ Union at UWE wins an award for embedding social norms of responsible alcohol consumption and building healthier, safer, more productive student communities across campuses.

The Students’ Union at UWE, in partnership with UWE Bristol, have been awarded the NUS Alcohol Impact accreditation. This reflects the dedication and commitment of both The Students’ Union and University to embedding social norms of responsible alcohol consumption and building healthier, safer, more productive student communities.

“We are thrilled to have retained our accreditation, originally awarded in December 2017. The Students’ Union works hard to ensure we have an inclusive programme of activity, and to ensure that students have a safe, healthy and fun experience whilst at UWE Bristol.” The Students’ Union  President, Precious Onyenekwu Tatah.

Alcohol Impact is a programme run by the National Union of Students (NUS) that seeks to create a social norm of responsible alcohol consumption amongst students. It offers a framework and certification of a whole institutions commitment to responsible consumption of alcohol, underpinned by social change theory.

Following an audit by trained UWE Bristol students in September 2019, The Students’ Union at UWE and UWE Bristol were rewarded for their achievements by retaining their accreditation.
