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 Welfare Officers for 2020-21 are: 

  • Senior Welfare Officer senior-welfare@cuths.com
  • Male Welfare Officer male-welfare@cuths.com
  • Female Welfare Officer female-welfare@cuths.com

To help organise and manage the running of welfare campaigns we additionally have a Campaigns Manager and a Campaigns Team. You can to be on the Campaigns Team in Michaelmas Term, or run to be Campaigns Manager in a JCR Meeting in Easter Term.

The student support office can be contacted on cuthberts.studentsupport@durham.ac.uk for those preferring to talk to a member of staff.

In emergencies please contact the porters.
