Welfare in College
Welfare mobile: 07719 – 162177
Text this number if you’d like to arrange a time and place to talk with a peer supporter.
Peer support is a confidential listening service provided by Catz students, for Catz students. Peer supporters (which includes the two Welfare Reps) receive 30 hours of training courtesy of the University’s Counselling Service as preparation for the role, and we’re always happy to listen to any student, with no problem too big or too small. Feel free to get in contact with any one of us – we’re always prepared to make time to lend you an ear!
There is a poster containing our room numbers, pictures and details above, on every staircase.
WELFARE EVENTS AND DROP-IN SESSIONS
On Wednesdays and Sundays at 5-6 (room announced in weekly Welfare email), there is a Drop-In Session. If there’s anything on your mind, big or small, come by and one of the team will be there to listen, one on one. Sessions are completely confidential, so if you see the door open, come right in.
Look out for other termly events in our emails! From film nights and TV show rip-offs in the JCR to Chlamydia screening, Welfare events are a diverse bunch!
