Welfare Reps and Peer Support

Hi everyone!

We’re Simone (studying History) and Joel (studying English and French), and we’ll be the Welfare Officers for this year, making up the Welfare Team alongside a wonderful group of Peer Supporters! We’ve all had training from the University Counselling Service, and so are available to confidentially talk through any issues you feel may be affecting your welfare; however big or small you think it may be, we’re free to have a friendly chat with a cup of tea (that rhymed)! We’ll also be running events throughout the year, like free brunches, picnics, and most importantly, Tea and Toast – we can also provide free sexual health supplies, as well as female hygiene products at a subsidised rate. We’ll be around a lot in Freshers Week to get to know everyone, and will be running Tea and Toast every night that week – what a dream.

If you have any questions or worries, get in touch!

Joel and Simone

PS – Despite having the same surname, we’re actually neither related nor married – this may be confusing having two Fraser’s on Welfare but I’m sure we’ll manage

 

Male and Female Welfare Reps 2017/18

Joel

Male Welfare

Hi, I’m Joel, I study English and French, and will be one of your Welfare Officers for this year! This means I’ll be available (as well as Simone, and the Peer Support team!) to chat to about issues you may be worried about that may be affecting your personal welfare, as well as helping to clear up and demystify some of the resources that are available to you at a college level, and at a wider university level. We’ll also be putting on lots of welfare events throughout the year that help bring college together (generally over free food), and create the welcoming, supporting atmosphere that is essential for a happy Oriel!

 

If you have any questions about Welfare (it can often be pretty confusing how it all works), don’t hesitate to drop me an email at joel.fraser@oriel.ox.ac.uk, or a facebook message.

Hi, I’m Simone and I’m a second year doing history. Me and Joel are the welfare reps for this year, and you should see lots of us around college, running events, making care packages, distributing sexual health supplies, and organising loads of things to help everyone enjoy their time at Oriel! We’re also here to help you more personally though, and you can talk to us (in person or through Facebook/email/whatever you’re most comfortable with) about anything that’s bothering you, however big or small, and with complete confidentiality. We’ve worked with the Counselling Service to get peer support trained, and we also have a fantastic team of peer supporters, so please never hesitate to reach out to one of us! Welfare love x

Peer Supporters 2017/18

Sid Baines

Peer Supporter

Hi, I’m Sid, a third year Mathematician from Liverpool, and one of your peer supporters for this year. Being a peer supporter means that I’m always here to talk to, whether you’re having a specific problem, feeling a bit down, or just fancy a chat. Along with the rest of this years peer supporters and welfare team, I was fully trained by the university counselling service, and will listen to anything anyone wants to say, no matter how big or small, in confidentiality. Aside from being a peer supporter, I like to spend my time cooking, cycling, and doing artistic gymnastics. Just a note about contacting me – my parents messed up my name, so I’m luke.baines@oriel.ox.ac.uk, and Luke for my pidge too, but Sid Baines for everything else.

Peer Supporter

Hello, everyone! I’m Mason, previously the JCR’s Male Welfare Officer and now a 3rd (and final 😕 ) Year Physicist, cool huh?

My role this year is to support all of you and Ally and Lukas as they serve our beautiful JCR.

There are so many of us here to listen and you’ll always find people to support, refer, or advise you. All of the help that we provide is confidential and there is a full team of students who are ‘Peer Support’ trained.

If that sounds a bit intense then do know that we’re here for absolutely everything – from someone to chat to on a low-day to being there in a crisis, and everything in between.

I live in Room 9 of LAR (on Rectory Road), so do please contact me in person, via Facebook, pidge, or email (mason.yousif@oriel.ox.ac.uk) should you ever need anything.

Hi, I’m Shay, and I’m one of the peer supporters at Oriel! I study Ancient and Modern History–which is a cooler version of History History–and live near the coast in Hampshire. I’m here to talk about anything that might be worrying you at all, whether it’s related to what you’re studying or not. I’m also the Ethnic Minorities rep for the college, so if there’s anything in particular that relates to being a BME student, you can definitely come and talk to me about that. I’ve been reliably informed that I’m pretty cool, so feel free to email me at shekinah.vera-cruz@oriel.ox.ac.uk, or to drop by my room 23.4
