St Aidan's JCR

JCR Welfare Hours

The JCR Welfare Team (consisting of the Senior Welfare Officer, the Assistant Welfare Officers, and the Identity Reps) hold contact hours each day throughout the week. Unless otherwise specified, all will take place in the JCR Welfare Room on C-Cross (the corridor above the Dining Hall, towards the curves end). Contact hours are every day from 6pm until 7pm.

What are Welfare Contact Hours For?

The contact hours listed above offer a confidential, active listening service in which anyone can come along and talk. If you are experiencing any difficulties, the team will be able to point you in the right direction by signposting you to the relevant service or, will be able to refer you onto a member of staff from the Student Support Team below. During these hours, you can also pick up a number of different supplies FOR FREE including information leaflets, sexual health supplies & relaxation aids. Don't be afraid to come and have a chat!

Other Forms Of Contact

If you do not want to come along to a drop-in session, there are many different ways to get in touch with us. You can drop the Senior Welfare Officer an email at [email protected] if you’d like to meet up somewhere outside of college or, if you want to talk anonymously, feel free to set up another email account to contact any of us from. You can also come and talk to one of us if you see us around college to arrange a meeting at a different time or place.


If you would like any supplies then please either contact us via one of the simply take from the emergency supplies outside the President’s Room (at the end of C-Straight) or the Welfare Room itself (see above). The free supplies we offer are: 

Sexual Health: Condoms, lube, dental dams, and pregnancy tests

Menstrual Products: Tampons and pads (these are also available at the Shop)

Student Support Team Contact Hours

All of our student support staff are trained in active listening and signposting and are a great source of advice and support, on any issue be it academic, financial, health or welfare. Like our JCR Welfare team, they also run regular office hours in which you can pop in for a chat.
