The candidates for NUS Vice President (Welfare) are:

Eva Crossan Jory

The Welfare Zone must act now - it must be transformative. Welfare must centre around care and collective action against cuts and oppression.

At Goldsmiths, we have been making ground-breaking work on these issues - improving our counselling service, fighting for tenants rights and creating institutional policy against sexual harassment. We urgently need a transformative Welfare Zone which amplifies our collective voice.

Izzy Lenga
Re-elect Izzy for VP Welfare

As your VP Welfare this year, I have not wasted a minute on delivering my promises - to transform NUS’ Welfare work so that it's focused to deliver on the issues that matter to students.

But the work’s not complete. Our support services are still under attack, hate crimes are spiralling on our campuses, mental health services are underfunded and students are living in squalor yet can’t meet their sky-high rent payments.

Re-elect me to finish the job - securing new standards and investment in support services, fighting campaigns to bring together a united, fighting and winning Welfare campaign.
