Welfare Board

The core function of Welfare Board is to make decisions on welfare-related issues, defined similarly to the Vice President Welfare’s remit, which includes but is not limited to housing, finance, mental, physical and sexual health and student safety. Welfare Board will consider all policies passed in Student Council relating to these or any other welfare issues.

The Welfare Board can discuss issues, lobby the university and pass policies.

The Board usually meets 4 times per year, and the next meeting is on TBC. The meeting will take place online. If you would like to attend a meeting of the Welfare Board, you can contact the Chair.
