2022 - 2023 Application Form

The current Chair of RAG Committee is Niamh Forster. 



The process and general timings of the Big Four selection are as follows:

  • 14th January: Applications open. Charities must complete an application form in full and submit this by the deadline 28th February 10:00am.
  • February. The student population are asked to vote for one charity in each of the four categories they would like to support in the next academic year.
  • February / March. A panel made up of RAG committee members, the SU Activities Officer, and Volunteering Staff members will review the applications to create a shortlist of up to 16 charities. These charities are usually categorised under four general headings linked to the aims of the organisation, for example, 'Health'.
  • March: Announcement. We aim to announce the four charities selected shortly after the vote.
  • September: Support starts. The new academic year starts and RAG will begin fundraising for their new Big 4
