Wellbeing Cafe Society
Political, Campaigning or Charity
The Wellbeing Cafe is based in the Students' Union, with a proactive focus on wellbeing. Our first ever Wellbeing Cafe was in October 2016. The initiative was started by the 2016/17 Development Officer (Michael Kind) and the Welfare Officer (Anna Mullaney) with hopes that it will form a space that aims to holistically tackle some of the key welfare issues for students, by creating a feeling of community and overcoming isolation. We use surplus food to create a healthy pay-as-you-feel meal every Monday during term time. Of course things have changed this year and we can no longer have in-person cafes, and so we are thinking of ways to move online!
Whether you are interested in volunteering as part of our kitchen team or welcoming our guests, we are always looking for more enthusiastic volunteers to help run our weekly events! The best way to find out more about volunteering is by contacting us through our Facebook page or alternatively by sending us an email (listed in the "contact us" section) For up-to-date events, check out our facebook page!

All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.
A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students' Union.
It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
