Provide Union groups' travel expenses separately from their budgets

Patrik Toobe submitted on

Tuesday 25th April 2017


It would be nice if members of union groups travelling somewhere to represent their group or the uni on behalf of the group were able to claim back travel expenses separately from their group's budget. For example, Surge Radio went to Abbey Road studios recently to broadcast there for a day but we had to travel there on our own dime from various places around the UK as our budget wasn't big enough to reimburse everyone. We were representing the uni and the union and we're already volunteering, plus reimbursable travel might encourage more people to get involved with events.
