Make a difference


KCLSU a member-led, democratic charity, so it’s really important that our members (all King’s students) decide what the Union does. Every year at the KCLSU Annual General Meeting, you have the opportunity to put questions to the KCLSU Trustee Board. There are presentations and discussions held about the organisation’s performance and published Annual Report and Accounts.
