Welfare and Campaigns Officer 2012/13
As Welfare and Campaigns Officer, this year we ran the most successful Housing Campaign ever! Over 1000 of you came to the Housing Day, we've had a surge in people using the Advice Centre to have contracts checked and seek help. Landlords and estate agents have commented that the Housing Campaign really seems to have worked this year.
We have also made developments to the Mental Health provision - with IAPT running a 4 week wellbeing course in Term 2, and will be doing another in Term 3, as well as drop ins all throughout exam time.
All year, I've been standing up for you at landlords, community and residents forums and working with the Police to help keep you safe.
Launched the Love Community campaign
Established the successful Campaigns Convention
Engaged student parents and carers with the SU with Coffee mornings and drop in sessions
Ran a hugely successful Crime Survey to help you keep your property and belongings safe
I have also got alot of experience of leading and making a difference with other things I have done. I was President of Salsa and President of Politics societies when I was a student. I have also been involved in the Homeless Shelter at St. Marys in Leamington. Before I came to University, I worked near London as a full time Youth Worker and loved being able to help young people.
I really want to do this job, because I am passionate about making a difference and helping people. I want to help the community, make a difference to your campus, and help you get the most out of your course, so please...
Vote Ben Sundell for President - for a brighter Union :D
