Welfare Officer – Stephen Garry

Stephen Garry, the Welfare Officer, is here if you ever need to talk or just want someone to listen. It can be as simple as having a friendly informal chat. Sometimes students find the trials and tribulations of third and fourth level a bit distressing. If you’re finding things difficult, you can’t settle in or you have a personal problem that you don’t feel confident talking to someone you know about, then send Stephen an email or drop into his office in House 6 or schedule an appointment. The drop in service is strictly confidential. Stephen can help with various problems including; accommodation problems, planned or unplanned pregnancy, financial difficulties, health and mental health problems, LGBT issues, bullying or harassment concerns, grants, legal advice, bereavement and many other non-academic concerns. The Welfare Officer also organises and coordinates some very visible campaigns throughout the year, which are intended to inform students of their rights and the help that is available to them. These include SHIFT Week, Mental Health Week and Rainbow Week. If you have an accommodation issue, finance issue, relationship issue, ANY issue, Stephen will be on hand to offer a listening ear in a welcoming environment. No problem is too big or too small.
