Hi everyone, I’m Bethany Moore and I’m your Welfare Officer! Is mise Oifigeach Leasa Aontas na Mac Léinn i mbliana!
I have just graduated from studying Law at QUB. During my time at Queen's, I have been a proud member of Project Choice and the Climate Action Group. During my final year I was also your RAG Chairperson who was in charge of fundraising for our chosen charities, Save the Children NI and Belfast Samaritans.
Being a student is exciting and fulfilling, but sometimes it can be challenging. When you need help, your Students' Union is here to support you. During your time at Queen’s, I will be here to represent your welfare needs, which includes your mental health, housing, financial support and more!
This past year has been a year like no other. When COVID-19 hit, I felt myself and my fellow students needed more support, which lead me to join the Students Deserve Better campaign.
As this year’s Welfare Officer, I will do everything I can to ensure students are supported and uplifted whilst studying at QUB. I want students to know that I am their advocate, their ally and their acquaintance.
Some issues I hope to work on this year include:
- Fighting for better mental health services
- Improving our standards of housing and protecting student’s rights as renters
- Increasing access to the Hardship Fund
- Adapting our Sexual Health Services
- Creating an online Student Well-being Resource Centre
If you’d like to find out more information on these issues, what I’m currently working on, the services your Students' Union offers, or how to get involved, please get in touch.
Thank you! Go raibh maith agat!
