#KeepTheGrants - Save Student Support Maintenance Grants

Reason for signing

  • Education is vital for our children to survive the bleak society they are inheriting. Enormous human potential is easily as thriving among young people from poor backgrounds but their challenges are so much greater. Cutting the grants was deeply wrong and short-sighted, and sadly typical of a government that so evidently hates its own people, if they are unfortunate enough to be poor. They need to reverse this.
