The Department is conscious that the health and wellbeing of its members are of great importance in order to have a thriving and productive community.  The University has initiated a Wellbeing Advocate scheme and the Department has become part of this network.

The Department has six Wellbeing Advocates: Giuliana Di Martino, Markus Hellenbrand, James Hope, Sohini Kar-Naryan, Tomeu Monserrat, and Rebecca Pritchard, who are available to staff and students. They are able to provide guidance and a general signposting service about wellbeing issues, including mental or physical health and dignity at work concerns.  Find out more about the Wellbeing Advocate programme here -

James Hope welcomes suggestions from Department members for activities that could be organised within the Department such as a reading group, a knitting group, a local lunchtime walking group or even a cake club, which could allow people to take time-out from their busy day to relax and enhance their wellbeing.
