The wellbeing and community officer has a key role in ensuring the University looks after students on things like wellbeing, mental health, money, food, on-campus accommodation. The officer plays a key role in equality, diversity and inclusion campaigns to improve the University community, and supports a wide range of liberation campaigns which affect our students, e.g. BAME students, LGBT+ students, students with disabilities.

The wellbeing and community officer is not a student advisor; our advice team provides that service. However, the officers work closely with the advice team to understand trends on things which are affecting student and works with students and staff to suggest and implement solutions.

Some of the key projects the welfare and community officer will work on in 2020/21 include developing a more pro-active approach to wellbeing, implementing the new national student mental health charter in the University, and supporting the creation and development of self-organising liberation campaigns.
