Students' Union, first floor

A bit about the role

With a focus on liberation campaigns, mental and physical health provision and general wellbeing issues, this role forms a key voice for campaigning on campus.

Sitting on the Union’s Board of Trustees, VP Welfare & Diversity spends time working closely with students on campaign delivery while ensuring the Union is delivering on its strategic plan.

A word from Lucy

Hi, I’m Lucy, your Vice President Welfare and Diversity.

I am here to represent the best interest of all students, and to improve wellbeing and equality within the SU and the College.

This year I want to work on the relationship between physical and mental health by working on how we can improve nutrition in outlets like Founder’s Dining Hall, The Hub and the Union Shop.

I am also working on improving safety for individuals who are at risk of, and who have been subjected to assault, by creating resources for survivors to effectively reach out for help.

In addition, I am keen to provide a platform for passionate students to have their voices heard and enable them to enact positive change within our community and environment. As part of this aim I will be pushing for better systems of feedback at the College, in particular for student support services and the GP Surgery.
