Hiya! I'm Ali and I'm this years Welfare Officer for the JCR.
My team, committee and I oversee all of the student-level pastoral care in college as well as organising and running campaigns throughout the year on topics such as alcohol awareness, sexual health and wellbeing (gotta love welfare's endless supply of condoms) and river safety. We also provide a dedicated phone service for you to use 9am-11pm every day with ANY questions you may want answered; from asking for an STI testing kit, which we stock, to wanting a taxi number if you are in town to just wanting to talk to somebody in a confidential, non-judgemental way, welfare are here! Our committee also has dedicated LGBTA+, sexual health and disabilities reps to name a few, so if you want some detailed advice from a knowledgeable student, welfare can help!
When I'm taking a break from welfare and 3rd year Anthropology you will often spot me in the smoking area or watching trashy Starz shows (current favourite; Vikings). Besides that, I am a member of the Netball B team as an average goal shooter as well as being the founding head of VMTV!
Please do not hesitate to get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org, give the welfare mobile a text during term time on 07964 591656 or follow us on twitter at @mildertwelfare . See you around college soon X
