Welfare is a confidential, non-judgemental, listening and sign-posting service, run by and for Van Mildert students. We have a unique two part structure which, we believe, allows us to provide the best peer support in Durham.
Team Welfare the people to call if you need information, sexual health supplies, or just fancy a chat. They have been specially trained to answer The Welfare Mobile, which is on every day during term time. Alternatively, you can send us an email, or come to a weekly drop in. So, if you're not sure what to do, get in touch. If we can't help you, we're bound to know someone who can.
The other half of this marriage made in Welfare heaven is Welfare Committee. These are the people committed to running the best Awareness Campaigns in awareness campaigns history. Expect to come away from our events with free sweets, condoms, pens, badges, bags, vitamins and leaflets, as well as an improved knowledge about the issues facing Durham students today. In the past, there have been campaigns about Alcohol Awareness, Sexual Health Awareness and Guidance (including the infamous SHAG Bop), Mental Health and Wealth, and much much more.
