Hi, I'm Rob (He/Him)! As one of the Corpus JCR Welfare Officers, alongside Abi, my role is to be a point of contact for listening, support and accessing other College/University-level resources to do with welfare. No problem is too big or too small to come with to either of us – anything you tell us when looking for support is completely confidential, and we are always happy to signpost the people at Oxford who might be able to provide more specific help. To that end, I am a Peer Supporter, meaning I have received more than 30 hours training in listening, mindfulness and skills to do with supporting people by the University Counselling Service. Additionally, I am Rainbow Peer, meaning I am part of the Scheme’s subgroup dedicated to LGBTQ-issues. Among other things, I am responsible for running men’s Welfare Tea, which is a chance to grab free food, relax and have a chat, and represent College undergraduates for welfare stuff on the JCR and Equal Opps Committees, and on the College Welfare Committee (the one involving senior College staff). Me and Abi are also in charge of providing some practical things, like contraceptives and sanitary products, to JCR members.
Feel free to contact me by email (firstname.lastname@example.org), Facebook or just to come and have a chat if you see me around College! 🙂
