Welfare Representatives

The Welfare Representatives are always happy to meet students for a chat, whether that is to discuss issues directly affecting you or your ideas and suggestions to improve student welfare.

You can contact the representatives directly in order to book in a time - you can meet in The Griff Inn, any other location or in the BLSA Office if you want privacy.
