Last year, our NSS responses raised over £4000 and made a real difference to the organisations we donated to – let’s make sure we can do the same this year.
If you’re a finalist eligible to complete this year’s NSS you will have received various communications from Ipsos Mori asking you to complete your survey – and if you’ve done yours, thank you. If not, we really would appreciate your views.
We understand that surveys aren’t everyone’s idea of fun (even though we really value the results). Which is why we donate £1 to charity for each completed response, as well as offering a prize draw for Amazon vouchers as a thank you for your time and considered views.
This year, you helped to choose the charities that will benefit from your responses, and we just wanted to remind you how the money raised will help the four charities:
Anxiety UK is a user-led organisation, run by people with experience of living with anxiety or anxiety-based depression, supported by a high-profile medical advisory panel. They work to relieve and support those living with anxiety and anxiety-based depression by providing information, support and understanding via an extensive range of services.
Barnabus is a Manchester-based homeless charity that offers physical, emotional and spiritual support to help people back into mainstream society. Services include a support centre open 5 days a week offering help with benefits, accommodation referrals, access to medical support including mental health services and recovery groups, and access to food, clothing, and showers.
FareShare is the UK’s largest food distribution charity, helping to support organisations such as breakfast clubs, community centres, homeless hostels and refuge support organisations.
Assist Withington is a charity based in Withington that works to support older people in the local community of Withington (and parts of Fallowfield and Didsbury). They provide a range of support services and activities for older people designed to help them continue to live independent, active and fulfilling lives as well as support services including telephone and in-person befriending services.
This year, more than ever, it’s important that we understand your experiences at University. We want to listen and use your feedback to help inform and shape how our provision looks in the future. Please take a few minutes to share your views. The survey is completely anonymous (even if you enter the prize draw.)
