This is a particularly important role in OCBC. All members of committee are points of contact for members of the club to talk to or to raise their concerns with; but our welfare officers are completely confidential and the best equipped to deal with any possible concerns. If needed they work with college officials to solve problems and they advise the committee and the captains on how to maximise the welfare of OCBC’s members.
I'm Simone and I'm a second year studying history, and also the JCR female welfare rep this year! I'm always around to chat to or message about any problems to do with OCBC or life in general, and I'm peer support trained too so I can help to direct you to relevant resources and people if you need them. Overall, I'm really committed to helping OCBC continue to be a welcoming and equal community and one that we're all proud to be part of.
