Hey, I’m Joe, a second year medic and your welcoming welfare officer. When I am not doing all things welfare, I enjoy a casual game of college lacrosse and playing my guitar to the annoyance of my staircase.
The role of welfare officer is to support members of the college. Be that in offering a listening ear with impartial advice and in a non-judgemental environment, or by providing free sexual health supplies to students. Sometimes things do not go quite to plan in Cambridge, and Rebecca, our other Welfare Officer, and I are here to listen to your concerns and perhaps point you in the right direction.
Rebecca and I are super-contactable, drop in to one of our fortnightly drop-ins (mine is a Wednesday at 6pm), come along to a welfare cake, send us a message on Facebook, email us (firstname.lastname@example.org). Even text us anonymously on the welfare phone, which is soon to be released.
I leave a number of condoms in my pidge, Rebecca also has a few pregnancy tests in her pidge too – but I encourage you to email us and we can place sexual health supplies in your pidge in a discreet envelope.
