Rachael Kitching
Welfare & Equality Officer
Hi! I’m Rachael, your elected Welfare and Equality Officer for this upcoming year!  I’m here for guidance on all things to do with student welfare, from sexual and mental health to housing and financial advice. I run several big campaigns throughout the year to try and keep you aware of what the Students’ Union can offer you and the services we provide, as well as to raise awareness and make change on the big issues that are currently affecting students.
We offer a sympathetic listening ear, information, advice, assistance and representation on a wide range of issues. including academic, disciplinary, finance, accommodation, legal information, personal/family, consumer and employment.
We are committed to campaigning to improve Newcastle as a university and as a city for our students. We have a proud history of championing great causes and have influenced real change for you, the students. Check out our handy Campaigns Resources, including quick tips and contacts to get your campaign up and running in our resources section. If you have an idea for a campaign you want to run please complete the form linked below.
Nightline has been listening, providing emotional support and information to students, every night during term time, 8pm-8am. We are student-run and on the other end of the phone when there is no-one else you can talk to.
