Event details

On Wednesday 11 March, we are hoping that our very new Chancellor Rishi Sunak will deliver the Budget that his predecessor was planning. The government, in its manifesto, has made it clear that it is going to be making great investments into education, increasing the number of nurses in the NHS, and investing in the North and Midlands. But will this actually happen? What do you want to see happen?

This event is a unique chance  to engage with the Budget, and discuss the key issues with  your fellow students, academics, and citizens of Nottingham. We want you to participate in this event to discuss how you think the budget will actually affect us during our time here in Nottingham, as well as those who live here permanently.

We will be discussing the key announcements, what we think  was missing from it, and what we think the government could be doing to create an economy that is suited to all of us. This event is about deepening student democratic engagement in something that affects our everyday life, and will continue to do so after graduation. This event will be providing the space for an open debate  on these issues.

If this is something that you are interested in,  please book your space via this link to receive updates.

*Due to the political uncertainty of this budget following the reshuffle we are still planning to host the event unless the situation changes. Please book your slot to express your interest in attending and we will keep you updated*

If you have any questions or simply want to talk about the session, contact Rich from Nottingham Civic Exchange.

A short briefing  on the budget and key announcements will be shared with all attendees to outline how the Budget works and what is being discussed as the key Governments announcements.
