Hi, I'm Liv...

I’m here to provide support for students on all aspects of welfare. I aim to tackle any issues they’re facing during their time at University to ensure they’re having the safest, most enjoyable time possible!

What I'm working on

  • Creating a Brack Committee to help make sure students’ voices at Brack are heard.
  • Introduced Student Mental Health Champions who are trained to lookout for the wellbeing of their peers. Over 55 got involved, helping me to arrange events and campaigns such as Stamp Out Stress.
  • Created a Zero Tolerance to Sexual Violence policy which was passed unanimously at Union Meeting. I’m currently looking at introducing it to both staff and students over the next few months.
  • Banned the use of plastic straws, created a Student Sustainability Forum, ran a Sea Change event for Nottingham Business School and introduced Sustainable Tuesdays, sharing tips and advice on being more sustainable on social media every week.
  • Held regular meetings with E&D officers, helped them run projects they were passionate about through the year and started looking into the restructure of the E&D officers to make them as effective as possible.
  • Created a Wellbeing Forum in collaboration with NTU, NTU Sport and The Global Lounge to discuss student wellbeing monthly.
  • Helped create a range of volunteering opportunities throughout the year such as Operation Christmas Child and charity donations. I also introduced the Clifton Foodbank as an ongoing volunteer opportunity with over 50 students volunteering there this year.
  • Worked tri-campus throughout the year to increase transparency, attending events, workshops and chatting to students as well as producing monthly vlogs showing what I’ve been up too each month.
  • Updated the Students’ Union’s Wellbeing Guide with current information on where students can go for support.
  • Updated the halls comparison sheet which allows students to compare different halls of residence and find the right place for them.
  • Improved relationship with halls providers by carrying out a tour with UPP to look at halls facilities and meeting regularly with them to ensure they’re up to date with what’s going on at the SU.
