Welcome to the Edinburgh University Save the Children Society






Come along to our weekly meeting on Mondays at 6pm in Chaplaincy in Room 2, Bristo Square to see how you can get involved!




Meeting our MP (Tommy Sheppard)



We believe that all children have the right to education, good health and to have fun. Society members collectively choose our campaign focus, including one UK and one international cause, with opportunities to engage in public speaking. So come along and meet our society to find out more!


We are an enthusiastic group of students who work together to campaign about causes that Save the Children are involved in across the globe, by engaging out with the local university community. 


Over the last few years, we have held a range of campaigns such as: petitions for child literacy, an exhibition and vigil for the refugee crisis, and letter writing sessions to local Members of Parliament.

Members can be trained as speakers (for free) to lead talks and workshops on the importance of child rights This is known as Speaking Out, which is a fantastic opportunity and part of what makes us unique as a society.



Head to our facebook page to see more photos of these fantastic events!


It would be great to see you at the society meetings to help us make this year even more successful than the last!
