We are committed to the UCL Zero Tolerance to Sexual Harassment pledge. All of our committee members have attended the Zero Tolerance workshop to make sure that our club upholds these values and provides a safe environment for all members.
PRIDE IN SPORT
Our LGBTQ+ Representative is elected by the club every year to represent students who might experience homophobia, biphobia or transpohibia. The Pride in Sport campaign is designed to create a welcoming environment for anyone who wishes to take part in the sports community 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.
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.
Heads Up has two main focuses for students: to raise awareness and de-stigmatise mental health on campus.
BLONDE FOR MIND
Over thirty of our members went blonde to raise money for Mind, a charity which seeks to de-stigmatise mental health. In total we raised nearly £4000.
Over a third of students at UCL will struggle with a mental health issue during their time at university, yet only a handful of these will be given the help they need. Our aim was to start a conversation about mental wellbeing in sport.
