Hi! I'm Kathryn Irish and I'm running to be Community Officer. In the words of the Spice Girls 'I'll tell you what I really really want'...
* Campaign against substandard housing
* Year long leases from the 1st to the 1st to avoid the panic of having nowhere to put your stuff.
* Meet specific housing needs of LGBTQ+ and international students (e.g. guarantor agreements and halls over summer).
* Reduce the amount you spend on bills and make your home greener.
* Sustainability grants for your societies.
* Easier for you to recycle glass, tetrapaks, and plastic.
* Reduce disposable plastic packaging on campus.
Community on Campus
* Free community art workshops.
* Tools library where you can get DIY, gardening, and art tools.
* Annual community art exhibition.
As community rep this year I've been lobbying the council to provide recycling facilities for tetrapaks and I've worked on the Leave Leeds Tidy initiative. I am also currently a finance assistant for LUU. In my second year I was treasurer for the Union Music Library.
