ABOUT AMY –
Women’s Officer with Laura Addison, Warwick SU
Coordination of International Working Women’s Week 2018, hitting Warwick next week!
We Get Consent Ambassador
Engaged in planning Mental Health Awareness Week
Social Secretary, Warwick ArtSoc, facilitating relaxation art sessions
Facilitated the POP Welfare Stand independently
All Women’s Committee founder, 2017
Active as a part of many societies on campus
Organiser of multiple sanitary collections and other campaigns
Liberation and Diversity Exec
Participant of the Enable Buddy Fresher scheme
Warwick’s counselling funding stands at £11.92 per student, vastly below the national average
Consent is often a heavily debated topic at university, and sports can be perceived as unwelcoming to liberation communities
Landlords can sometimes take advantage of unaware students
The Warwick ‘bubble’ can often be lonely
I will devote my efforts to push for mental health service funding, always.
I plan to continue on working with the existing We Get Consent and Reshaping Sport campaigns
Workshops on finding housing and how to deal with dodgy house owners, along with accommodation subsidies
I will carry on the POP welfare stand, an event that I feel comfortable and keen to do, considering I’ve already run it independently as Women’s Officer
I also want to bring the All Women’s Committee into greater light as a wider SU event
Outside of this, I’ll liaison with PTOs and campaign for accessibility and inclusivity in everything that I do
Part Time Officers are overstretched and under supported
Departmental efforts and support services are not accessible and structurally intimidating, which is hugely detrimental to student wellbeing
Mental health stigma stops potential student integration into life at Warwick
Outside of having regular meetings with the current PTOs, MOORE WELFARE wants to see the introduction of a Mental Health Part Time Officer as part of the Liberation and Diversity Executive
I want to introduce a compulsory mental health Personal Tutor Training in all academic departments
I pledge to involve myself in the coordination of Mental Health Awareness Week again!
ARTS, SPORTS AND SOCIETIES
University can be a stressful and isolating environment
The arts and sports should be seen as a welfare issue
Often, there’s a worry to be involved in the arts, sports and societies under a concern of time commitments to academia
I want to implement Welfare Officers in every society to ensure a cohesive and happy university experience
I aim to make this year’s Creative Warwick an annual week long collaboration event, including introducing crafts sessions in the library, continuing the Are You Okay campaign
Wednesday afternoons should be free for all
