Hi, I’m Alex this years’ Men’s Welfare Officer. I am a second year Chemical Engineer from Leeds. It is important that all members of the college feel that they have someone whom they can speak to if they have any worries and who will assist them in a professional and if necessary, confidential way. I will act as a representative for men within college, hosting various events throughout the year for men and non-binary individuals.
I am always available to contact if you have any questions or worries. My email is [email protected].
Hi, I’m Chris, your Men’s Welfare Officer. second-year medic with perhaps not the most time, but a strong, genuine love for all things Robinson and the wonderful community within. Talking about how you feel is the most okay thing ever, yet more than 40% of men who have bad thoughts or have contemplated suicide feel like they cannot talk about their feelings, fearing being stigmatised or judged. I want to break this stigma. Here at Robinson we really look out for one another. Reach out - your mates are there to support you. And if you don’t want to talk to anyone, I get it. You can talk to me, I will listen to you. We are not professionals, but we will listen to you, and where possible, confidentially!
Becky and I will act as representatives for women, men and non-binary individuals within college, hosting various events. I am always available to contact if you have any questions or worries.
What the Men’s Welfare Officer is about...
Sexual Health & Consent It is my belief that the welfare team’s responsibility on issues related to sex should be shared between the Men’s and Women’s officers!
Drinks & Events I will organise events. Men’s drinks, yes, but also open mic nights, quizzes, music relaxation sessions, free food and the like as part of the welfare team. I will also draw up a Termly Bulletin.
