Campaign against cuts to the Disabled Students' Allowance

dsa

The government have announced cuts to the Disabled Students' Allowance, which would see all non-medical support except in the most extreme cases cut. This will have a huge impact on students in Cambridge with disabilities and learning difficulties!

Join in with the campaign against the cuts on the 6th June and following the end of term to make sure that disabled students aren't marginalised!

Results of the CUSU referendum

06 May 2014 | Cambridge University Students' Union
The result of the CUSU Referendum on changes to the Union's Constitution and Standing Orders are as follows: 
Do you agree with the proposed changes to CUSU's Constitution and Standing Orders?
YES: 1,223 (83.37%)
NO: 217 (14.79%)
Spoilt ballots: 27
Total votes cast: 1,467
A majority of 10% or more of all students were required to vote in favour of the changes in order for them to take effect. This quota was not reached, and as such the proposed amendments will not come into effect. Nominations will open for the sabbatical positions of CUSU Welfare and Rights Officer and CUSU Coordinator at 9am on Tuesday 06 May.
CUSU President, Flick Osborn, said "It is disappointing that CUSU did not meet this particularly high threshold for these changes to take effect. However, having spent the last week meeting students and discussing the changes, it's clear that there is a strong appetite around Cambridge for CUSU to better support societies, autonomous and ethical campaigns, and change the way it works in the future. Although these changes haven't passed just now, I look forward to using the momentum gained this week to ensure we see CUSU changed for the better in the future."
