On Wednesday 20th May Nadia will host an online panel event for students across Nottingham East to discuss how they have been impacted by the outbreak of COVID-19.
The panel will include representatives from the Students Union and student activists.
Nadia Whittome said:
“My office has been contacted by a large number of students who have been adversely affected by this pandemic. Many students work in the gig economy or rely on zero-hours contracts because loans do not cover living costs.
“Their incomes have been greatly reduced and many report being unable to continue paying rent on their empty properties.
“I have organised this event to give my student constituents an opportunity to ask questions, raise concerns, and tell me how COVID-19 has impacted them”.
