Welfare Officers

St Cuthbert's JCR provides a non-judgemental, confidential listening and signposting service. The JCR Welfare Officers are students elected by the members of the JCR and here to provide peer support for you. They also form a link to the other forms of help within the College and University.

The two Welfare Officers for 2016-17 are Josh Butterworth (male-welfare@cuths.com) and Cat May (female-welfare@cuths.com). The Assistant Welfare Officers are Rishi Jindal and Lauren McNally.

College Welfare

St Cuthbert’s Society has many tiers of support available to students.

If you wish to speak to a member of staff instead of a member of the JCR (the student body), you may contact Dr Phil Bolton at cuthberts.studentsupport@durham.ac.uk.

University Support

Durham University provide many forms of specialised support, such as the Counselling Service, Disabilities Service, and Student Union Advice Services. For more information on these, click here.

LGBT+a & SWDA

The Durham LGBT+ Association and SWD Association are two bodies, within the Student's Union, which offer representation, welfare, socials, and campaigns. The LGBT+A's website can be found here.

Within Cuth's, we also have elected LGBT+ and SWD Reps. They sit on our Welfare Committee and provide a point of contact for the students they represent. For 2016/17, our LGBT+ Rep is Dom Robson, and the SWD Rep is currently an unfilled role.

Campaigns

The Welfare Officers appoint a Campaigns Team each year, who run campaigns within college. Anyone in the JCR can apply to be a member of this Campaigns Team. Campaigns are managed by the two Assistant Welfare Officers.
