VP Community and Welfare

Aida - Community Officer

My objectives for this year are:

  • Social Justice
    -  Equality in enjoying every service in the University that will help out students achieves their potentials is one the major things I stand for.
    - I stand for more investment in the mental health of our student’s by the University and Students Union.
    - I also want to create a student Nightline student-run, anonymous free telephone helpline operating 7 days a week from 8pm-8am providing confidential listening, support and information for all students. This service already exists at 34 other universities in the UK, and there is no reason that it should not be at Wolverhampton too.
  • Community
    - Under my leadership the Community Office will run a number of projects aimed at improving student well-being, from holding laughter therapy sessions to holding Yoga session for all students every Wednesday afternoon in the Students’ Union open space.
  • Empowerment
    - My office will help to empower the international that has long been neglected in our University. International students hardly benefit from any discounts in the UK and our University.
    - Bursary for international student is one of the things I will fight for.
  •   Accessibility
    - I will ensure my office creates an easy to use website that collates all the welfare and support related service to students and how they can access them.
    - I ensure that student issues are always passed onto the Community Office, and wider SU if required.
    - There are already a lot of services available to students, but unfortunately most of us are not aware of them! I will change this with the creation of this new website and by further integrating the Welfare Office with the Student Life Centre and Student Support Unit.
