FXU President Community & Welfare
I’m Harry Bishop, your President Community & Welfare. My role is about supporting different student communities, developing student welfare services, and putting on some truly unique campaigns and events for you. But most importantly, my job is to make you feel like you belong and feel supported during the next year.
Over the next year I’ll be working with you on some really exciting projects! Such as renovating the student services building, constructing the first-of-its-kind University and Samaritans collaboration on campus, creating an online self-care toolkit for you, continue to direct the Voices Project, and working with our Community & Liberation Committees along with bring you loads of exciting, moving and diverse events.
Your time here will hopefully be an incredible experience, but it might also be tough at times; whether it's housemates ‘borrowing’ your milk, having to balance your work and social life, or maybe it’s something more serious, we can signpost to the right support for you. Remember that it’s okay to not be okay sometimes, so come and chat to me at one of my Frazzled Café drop-in sessions. Whether you just fancy a cup of tea and a slice of cake, have an idea for me, want to chat or just sit quietly and have some down time, that’s what Frazzled Café is there for and don’t hesitate to email me or contact me on my work Facebook.
