Campaigns Officer: Hanna Suliman-Nicol
The Campaigns Officer co-heads the Welfare Team alongside the Welfare Officer, coordinating the various services offered by College Welfare. In addition to this, they are responsible for organising the welfare campaigns in college, working in close conjunction with the DSU and University services to provide informative campaigns that seek to increase awareness and decrease stigma around a range of issues. Our campaigns are 100% student-led, and are centred around issues most pertinent to Durham students.
In recent years, campaigns have ranged from Mental Health Awareness Week, to the big favourite SHAG (Sexual Health and Guidance) Week, and form a central part of events in college. Activities to promote campaigns include everything from themed formals, amazingly produced booklets (shout-out to Jimmy Lee), talks, to visits from Jolene the Welfare Dog.

Hola, I’m Hanna!
I’m a final year English undergraduate at Castle who by virtue of the Campaigns Officer role, gets arguably the best room in College. I’ll be based in J28 next to Henry Fernandez (J27), which you’ll want to keep in mind as we leave a stash of Welfare ‘supplies’ (read: condoms) outside our rooms.
Being on the Exec, I’m undoubtedly a bit too keen for college (lol) and have gotten involved in a number of things such as running the Ents and June Ball admin teams, being on the Security Committee (thoroughly recommend as a way to make a bit of cash and meet new people), and doing publicity for CCFS19.
Like my wonderful counterpart Henry, I am always happy to chat and am easily reachable through Facebook/email, or feel free to grab me in person. I’m also always excited to hear from people with ~wOkE~ Campaigns ideas.
