Peer Support

Newnham’s JCR and MCR both have elected Welfare Officers, whose role is to assist students in accessing appropriate resources, whether that’s providing sexual health supplies anonymously or by providing information about what resources are available, accompanying students to initial appointments, and making students feel more comfortable about asking for help.

They also organize welfare-related events, from weekly ‘Welfare Teas’ to informative seminars, to stress-busting events in exam term. They also campaign on welfare issues.
