In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, The Students’ Union made the difficult decision to start the process of furloughing staff. Where possible we are working to access the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) for as many of our staff as possible, including the student staff who we believe may be eligible. Staff that are eligible will be paid as usual at the end of April.
As an organisation, we are doing all that we can to support our student staff at this difficult time and are working to keep individuals updated as we navigate this constantly evolving climate.
Should students find themselves in need of financial hardship during this period, we would advise them to access the UWE Bristol Coronavirus Emergency Fund here
