Societies at the University of Cambridge

Hi all, I'm Letty – your new Societies Project Coordinator. I'm working until the end of July to:

  • support and guide societies in applying for grants and managing their finances
  • support and guide those interested in setting up a new society
  • develop and provide training sessions, workshops, tailored support, and other resources and guidance materials

I'll be uploading resources and training and workshop dates throughout the project and will keep you updated of these through a variety of channels, including the societies bulletin, directory mailouts (make sure you're added as a manager of your society to receive these), facebook and twitter… so you shouldn't be able to miss anything.

I am here to respond to what you want so email me on with any questions, suggestions or requests. I look forward to hearing from you!
