Social responsibility

Our research contributes towards social responsibility and green impact schemes at the University.

Green impact

Wehave signed up as members of the NUS green impact scheme.

Following our success in 2014-2015, this year we were awarded  Gold and Silver awards for 2015-2016.

Initiatives include:

Weekly wool collective

Come along to our weekly lunchtime sessions and learn how to crochet or knit. Use your new skills to keep you warm this winter or donate what you make to charity.

Green impact week

Every year we hold a green impact week with events and activities that are of interest to the department. 

Fundraising activities

Our staff members also towards the Manchester Homeless Christmas Shoe Box appeal, participate in the Annual Jane Worthington Cup, and bake and buy from bake sales throughout the year.
