The TCDSU Welfare & Equality Officer voices your interests on a number of committees that make decisions about how Trinity College Dublin is run, e.g. the Student Life committee oversees the provision of student services like College Health or Student Counselling.
During the year, the TCDSU Welfare & Equality Officer helps run college-wide campaigns about everything from sexual to mental health. These are designed to spread awareness about the supports available to students in Trinity (or nationally!) and to put our collective strength behind efforts to improve them. For example, it's great that you can now order free at-home STI testing kits in the Republic of Ireland at sh24.ie, there is still no universal provision of free period products across universities and other teaching institutes.
