Welfare Reps and Peer Support

Hello everyone!

This year’s friendly neighbourhood Welfare Team consists of a Self-Identifying Male Welfare Officer (Lukas, a second year PPEist), a Self-Identifying Female Welfare Officer (Ally, a second year chemist) and a group of incredible Peer Supporters. We’re all fully trained by the University Counselling Services to help out in any way we can, no matter how big or small! We’re all available for friendly chats, to listen to worries, or help with essay crises whenever needed, and all in confidentiality. Throughout the year we run a tonne of food filled events such as Brunches and Film Nights, as well as providing free sexual health supplies, and female hygiene products at a subsidised rate. You’ll also be seeing lots us in Freshers Week, as we’ll be helping out at most events, as well as running tea and toast every night.

Any queries, please get in touch x

Hi there, I’m Lukas, I’m a 2nd year PPEist and I’m your male Welfare Officer. Together with Ally, I’ll try my best to make Oriel a welcoming and happy place for you. We’ll be doing various things to make sure you’re having a good time at Oriel, including yummy brunches, fun film nights, providing sexual health supplies, putting together care packages, and much more. Together with our team of lovely peer supporters, we’re also here for your personal Welfare needs. Anything that’s on your mind, no matter how big or small, just come find one of us and we’ll be happy to listen, with everything you tell us being treated confidentially. We also know a fair bit about the workings of the wider university Welfare structure so we’ll be happy to point you in the right direction if it all seems a bit confusing. I live in the set directly above the JCR, find me there or contact me at lukas.beckerhinn@oriel.ox.ac.uk or through the Oriel Welfare Facebook account.

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.

Mason

Yousif

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.

Peer Supporter

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

Peer Supporter

Hiya everybody! I’m Benny, a second-year lawyer and one of your peer supporters for this year. This basically means I’m available anytime you feel like a chat, to bring up any concern no matter how big or small. We have an absolutely fab team this year and have all been trained by the university counselling service so hopefully we can be of some help. Everything shared will be entirely confidential of course. My fave things to do at uni include insisting that I’m Scottish despite not sounding like it at all, not showing up to lectures, yearning to see my gorgeous three dogs again, and drinking copious amounts of tea in sc 9 rm 3. Do pop along if you want to share something or email me at benedict.morillo@oriel.ox.ac.uk. Facebook message works as well x
