Health and wellbeing
University of Limerick Student Life
Requirements:Current UL Student
The Welfare Team is a group which tackles welfare issues throughout campus and is run through the welfare office. The Welfare Team is an opportunity to get involved in running the campaigns that you feel strongly about, tackling welfare-related issues that are relevant to students, answering questions that current students are asking, and most importantly, having fun while doing it. Our campaigns range from mental health awareness, drug and alcohol issues, sexual health, LGBT+ wellbeing and a whole host of health related issues. These are just some aspects of student life that the team might decide are worth tackling. After that, what the Welfare Team does and becomes is up to ye! The sky’s the limit, and as the Welfare Officer, I hope to support your ideas, not limit them. We welcome all volunteers who have a passion for student welfare or who just want to get involved and meet new people.
The Welfare Team is a fantastic way to get involved in university life and meet new people. Not only this, members of the team will develop an array of skills varying from project management and communication to marketing and leadership. These skills also include those arising from various training opportunities throughout the year including suicide awareness and intervention training and sexual health training. Joining a group like the Welfare team looks brilliant on a CV and is great experience if you're interested in getting involved in student representation.
Your involvement in the Welfare Team will also allow you to apply for the President’s Volunteer Award which you will hear so much about throughout the year.
We welcome anyone and everyone to join the team, from 1st to 4th year, access students, postgrads, mature students, international students, Erasmus students etc.
Finally, it’s about having fun and doing good work at the same time. You will make some great friends, have so much fun and learn a huge amount about yourself.
If you are interested in joining, drop me an email at email@example.com and I can add you to our closed Facebook group. The first meeting of the Welfare Team will be Wednesday, Week 2, at 6pm in the Student Centre. Come along to find out more.
