Welfare

Male Welfare Executive - Colin McCann

Hi, I'm Colin, the Male and NB Welfare Executive for 2021. I'm a first year Engineer from Southampton. I look after everyone's welfare as members of the JCR, which involves working with college on policy, signposting people toward help, and organising events to benefit the Fitz community. The execs work as a pair so Thalia and I are super happy to be a source of help to anyone and everyone, but we also have an amazing subcommittee to provide more details on specific welfare needs. 

Feel free to send me/Thalia and do check out the welfare support tab for lots of helpful links and welfare supplies!


Manifesto

Hello, I'm Thalia, the Female and NB Welfare Executive for 2021. I'm a first year English student. 

As part of the Welfare Team, a group of dedicated people-minded individuals, I help to organise welfare events and resources around college. We want to improve Fitz to make it as welcoming as its reputation for inclusivity suggests. There is still work to be done and as we do it we will be supporting you with anything you need so contact us whenever about whatever, no problem is too small or too big!

I would love to help support you, be a friendly face in college and share that Billy Pride!

Manifesto

Class Act Officer - Freya Prince

Hi, I’m Freya! I’m a first year musician and this year’s Class Act officer. This means I’m here to support people who are working class, young carers, care-leavers, state school educated, low income, first generation, or estranged. I am a young carer from a Requires Improvement northern state school, so I personally know how much Class Act can help with tackling life in Cambridge. 

From running events to help us all meet each other, to meeting up for a coffee if you need some advice or a friendly face, I hope to spend this year helping the CA community at Fitz. 

Feel free to get in touch with me any time on this email or Freya Prince on Facebook.

Hi, I'm Emilia and I'm a second-year Historian. As Academic Affairs Executive I'm responsible for supporting students with their studies, whether that's pointing you in the direction of helpful resources or raising concerns you have with college.

Green Officer - Hannah Harrison

Hi! I’m Hannah, a second-year geographer and your Green Officer for this academic year.   

Making environmentalism as accessible as possible is essential in tackling the climate emergency. I’m keen to do so by providing the Fitz community with resources to get involved with climate action, as well as information on environmental policies and activist groups. If this interests you, be sure to check out @fitz.green on Instagram which will be launching at the start of Lent term, and look out for the green events I'll be running throughout the year! I'm super excited to work with Ethical Affairs and the student body in making Fitz a greener and more sustainable place to be. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to send me an email.

Ents Executive - Louis Henry

Hi I'm Louis, a first year Historian! I'll be responsible for organising and putting on social events at Fitz this year! This is going to be a really tough year to do our normal things like Bops, Fitz Up or Fitz Sessions but the Ents Officers and I have some good plans ready for Lent term making sure everyone not at college doesn't miss out  as well as some great ideas for when we're hopefully back at college for Michaelmas and when we can do some in-person things! Regardless of any event being online or offline, I'll do my best to ensure things actually happen and that you all enjoy them!

Please get in touch with me about any ideas for any sort of event, we don't want anyone feeling there are no events for them and the best way to prevent this is to simply hear feedback and ideas!
