Welfare & Equality Officer
Hi! My name is Sarah Craggs, your Welfare and Equality Officer for 2017/18! My primary role involves running liberating and informative campaigns to represent wellbeing interests of all students; from mental health awareness, to housing and financial advice.
As well as running regular campaigns, I work by an open-door policy, inviting any students to come in regarding any issues, or just for a friendly chat! Please do not hesitate to send me a message via E-mail, Facebook, or drop in!
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.
If you have an idea for a campaign you would like to run please head to the Campaigns Fund tab. We are here to help get your ideas up and running so please get in touch with any questions.
Nightline is a completely confidential, anonymous support line run by students for any student who has something they want to talk about, from housemate drama and missed deadlines to mental health struggles. Run from 8pm-8am every night throughout term time, Nightline is a safe space to talk about any issues or upsets so please feel free to call us, even if you just want to chat.
