Welfare Information

Welfare Officers are an integral part of our Team Newcastle clubs. This student led role takes proactive measures to impact student welfare within their club, be that through providing drop in welfare sessions, signposting students to relevant support services, signing their club's Pledge Card, applying for Earn Your Stripes or being involved in a Campaign such as This Girl Can, Nutrition Week or Disability Awareness Week.
NUSU has pledged to have a welfare officer within every club by 2020 and we have achieved this by making it a permanent executive position on all Club Committees, all of whom receive training on the role, mental health in sport, disability awareness, anti-doping and nutrition.
