Spend It is the Guild’s way of distributing grant funding to its societies. Alongside the overall principles and values of participatory budgeting, the Guild wants to ensure that societies who want to organise good events or activities, or buy items, for their society have access to funding to support them to do so.  

All society committee members are invited to four meetings per year, where bids will be presented to them by other society committee members. Attendees can make amendments to the bids by consensus, and all attendees can then vote on the bids. The bids with the most votes,  will be funded up to £4,000 in total.

We invite bids that are for:

  • More than £350, up to £4,000
  • Large items/events/activities
  • Projects that include collaboration between societies
  • Projects that are likely to have a longer lead-in time
  • Projects that have a benefit to the wider society/student community

When is the deadline to get my society’s bid in?

The deadline for bid submissions is Monday 5th Febraury 9am - you can complete your bid form here.

You can find more information about the criteria for bids on the bid form, but if you have any questions about this, please let us know at

When is the meeting taking place?

Spend It Round 3 will take place on Saturday 24th February, 10am-1pm, in the Stanley Theatre, here at the Guild. 

Only one representative per society should attend to take part in the voting of the meeting.

We will be in touch with you all following the bid submission deadline with any further questions on your bid or next steps.
