Hi, I’m Andy and I’m your Wellbeing Officer for this year. I studied a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science at Manchester Met. During my time at University, I was the Chair of the LGBT+ Society where I worked with students to run campaigns and make change. I’m also a newbie vegetarian so if you want to make change or you want to send me some bangin' recipes, shoot me an email.
The Wellbeing Officer focuses on issues affecting all aspects of non-academic student life, working with other officers to create positive change.
They represent students on accommodation issues, including halls, residences and private landlords, and can lead campaigns on community issues affecting students.
The Wellbeing Officer works with student volunteers and campaigners on areas of student life and wellbeing.
I’ve been preparing for the start of the new academic year and planning campaigns with the other student officers. I am currently supporting new projects in the University around mental health and student wellbeing which will begin with the introduction of new student hubs. I have been working with the University in their review of Exceptional Factors to make it a process that truly supports students to do the best that they can. Finally, I have been supporting the University in their application for Manchester Pride and will be providing feedback of the event to the University.
