Wellbeing

Lianne Hunter

Hey! I'm Lianne, your Wellbeing Officer for this coming year and I'm 21 (the baby of the team). I'm originally from the glorious county of Cheshire, best known for its awesome cheese and famous faces. I studied Childhood Studies here at Huddersfield and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.

In my role as Wellbeing Officer, I am responsible for working closely with the SU Advice Centre to support and respresent students across various areas, such as finance, health and accommodation. I also liaise with Hudlets to provide you with the best value for money on student Housing and halls, and work to ensure students are aware of the welfare and safety services available.

My plans and progress so far:

Gender Neutral Toilets

The Union should lobby the University to have Gender Neutral Toilets.

Zero Tolerance, and publishing the zero tolerance policy

Create a culture where what counts as harassment is understood and not accepted.

The Union should actively promote the policy, allowing people to speak up to bullying and intimidation.
