Welfare and Support
The Women's Campaign offers welfare support to its members because women and non-binary students have specific welfare needs. They are also most at risk of experiencing sexual harrassment, discrimination or domestic violence.
We are also aware, however, that women and non-binary people have diverse needs; the welfare requirements of a female student with a disability is different from those of a white queer woman, or a non-binary person from an ethnic minority. The Women's Campaign is dedicated to meeting all of these needs, and coordinating with other campaigns and organisations to ensure that the support that every student deserves is available to them.
We have compiled a list of other campaigns and organisations which are available on this page. If you think anything is missing feel free to email us and let know - we would be very grateful for your help!
Contact the Women's Sabbatical Officer
Any student who self-defines as a woman or as non-binary may approach the Women's Officer for support with any problem.
Students often come to the Women's Officer with welfare concerns which they feel affect them specifically as women or non-binary people, such as sexual assault, body image, eating disorders or difficulties with supervisors or relationships. Please get in touch with any questions, requests for information or to receive a pregnancy testing kit.
The Women's Officer will be happy to talk with you via email, phone, or in person, at a time which is convenient for you.
The Student Advice Service
The Student Advice Service consists of a student advisor and CUSU's Women's Officer, Welfare Officer and Education officer who have been trained to offer non-directive, non-judgemental and confidential support and expertise. Have a look at the website for additional welfare support or get in contact with any of them with your question.
