The Student Forum was established by the Government to help share best practice between local councils, Electoral Registration Officers and universities. It does not require funding itself; instead, the Government has funded national organisations and Electoral Registration Officers to carry out activities to increase the completeness and accuracy of the electoral register.

This funding amounts to £14 million over the past two financial years, and includes a specific allocation of £530,000 for student organisations.
