We are proud to be the first club at UCL to appoint a dedicated Welfare Representative as part of our campaign for mental health training for all UCL clubs and societies committee members. Our club is mental health accredited by our student union and we are supporters of the UCL Head's Up initiative, which aims to raise awareness and de-stigmatise mental health on campus.
Our Welfare Officers have put together a welfare handbook to help inform our members on where they can seek help if they need it.
Last year, more than half of our men’s club donned a terrible moustache for 30 days, raising over £1250 for Movember’s mental health charities.
This year, they will be taking part in both the Movember and Blonde for Mind initiatives, setting a lofty fundraising target of £2500 for the year.
We are committed to the UCL Zero Tolerance to Sexual Harassment pledge. Our clubs have dedicated welfare officers to ensure we foster a safe and inclusive environment where all of our members feel comfortable.
PRIDE IN SPORT
Our LGBTQ+ Representative is elected by the club every year to represent students who might experience homophobia, biphobia or transphobia. The Pride in Sport campaign is designed to create a welcoming environment for anyone who wishes to take part in sport at UCL regardless of sexuality or gender. Our Representative will attend training to make sure that our club is accessible to all.
Every year, we hold a Pride in Sport tournament in Regents Park. Our informal afternoon of mixed lacrosse, doughnuts and rainbow kit raises money for Stonewall.
