Inclusive Buddies Introduction

Meet all six of them here

Inclusive Buddies Introductions

You may have come across our page and thought to yourself ‘What even are Inclusive Buddies?’ Or alternatively you may have heard a bit about us and come to find out more! Well hopefully this will start to lift some of the mystery. We are a team of six diverse and enthusiastic Newcastle University Students whose sole purpose is to help you integrate well into the community here, and ensure that nothing makes you feel alienated.

We’re here to help everyone feel welcome, whether your experiencing issues as a BAME individual, as someone from a low-income household, estranged students - or anyone who needs support and advice. Whether it be culture, finance, mental health or you simply need a chat, feel free to message us anytime!

Throughout this year we hope to share our experiences and advice via UniBuddy (hence the spin on the name!) - posting blogs and answering questions, through social media channels, and here, on this very page! We’ll also be engaging in a variety of campaigns to help Newcastle become your home away from home.

Here’s a little more about the six of us individually:
