I will make student housing fairer by improving the protection and advocacy available to student tenants.
Why? Because all students - regardless of their background - deserve equal access to quality private housing
I will champion student-led support and student-centred support services to improve student wellbeing.
Why? Because Durham has the potential to offer outstanding support, and it should.
I will establish a Women’s Association at the SU so we can champion equality and women’s issues across Durham University.
Why? Because women’s voices on issues that affect them need to be amplified.
I’m Rosa, I’ve just finished a BA Geography degree, and I’m so excited to be your new (and first!) Welfare and Liberation Officer! I became really involved with student wellbeing during my degree - with Nightline, college welfare and a national project on student mental health – and my desire to continue influencing student wellbeing at Durham, on a different scale, motivated me to run for this position.
If you want to chat to me about anything wellbeing-related or want to share an idea or problem, please drop me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org and, if you like, we can arrange to meet/a phonecall! You can also keep up-to-date on the work I’m doing by adding me on Facebook (Rosa Tallack SU) and following me on Twitter (@DurhamSUWelfLib).
If you’re finding things tough, do chat to someone about it, whether that’s a friend, someone from college welfare, Nightline, student support staff in college, the SU’s Advice Centre… there are so many people around to support you. email@example.com
