Donation To Birmingham Students

Donation to Birmingham City University Student Hardship Fund 2013

USHA has presented a cheque to the Student Hardship Fund at Birmingham City University at the end of our Autumn Seminar staged at the Universities brand new multi million pound development ‘Parkside Building’.

The money was presented in lieu of venue hire and AV technician costs at the Institution

The seminar, supported by AUDE, focused on the safety aspects of building design and was attended by over a hundred delegates.

Birmingham City University Health and Safety Manager and USHA Executive Board Member Scott Trim says “throughout the day a consistent message was given by all of the speakers that designers, building users, fire safety advisors and health and safety teams need to engage in early consultation if new builds and project refurbishments are to result in buildings which are fit for purpose and compliant for all. I know from talking to many of the delegates that this is a challenge facing many of us with the Health, Safety and Fire professions”.

Assistant Director of Student Services at Birmingham City University Raaj Shamji was on hand to receive the cheque, “as a University we will ensure this kind donation is used to support students that are faced with unforeseen financial hardship. We are grateful to USHA for their consideration in supporting our student body”
