From the Welfare Officer

Hello, I’m Sarah, a 2nd year studying Biomedical Sciences. I’m the JCR Welfare Officer, so I’m here to help you with any problems you may encounter throughout the year. I’ll be running regular ‘Welfare Teas’, but, if you ever need to talk about anything, you’re more than welcome to come for a chat anytime in my room (12.5 Grove quad), or give me a call. My number is up on posters in the JCR and Laundry Rooms, and you can contact me quickly using the contact form on this website.

I can also provide you with free welfare supplies – anything from condoms and lubricant to pregnancy tests and attack alarms. Furthermore, I can help put you in touch with more specialised help should you need it, such as doctors, GUM clinics or professional counsellors.

Peer Support & The Welfare Team

However, I’m far from being the only member of the welfare team! Lincoln offers you everything from Peer Supporters to LGBTQ Reps, help for international students and help with work, to Cookie Fairies – all there to make sure your time here is as great an experience as it should be. All the details are up in the JCR and the Laundry Room, and on your welfare pack from the start of term, but if you want a copy of their details, do just get in touch.

College Nurse

The College Nurse (Midge Curran) will be available in the College Surgery (Chapel Quad, between staircases 7 and 8 ) at the following times from 0th to 9th week inclusive:

Monday 1.00 pm – 2.00 pm
Tuesday 8.00 am – 9.00 am
Wednesday 1.00 pm – 2.00 pm

Friday 1.00 pm – 2.00 pm

Midge can also be contacted at midge.curran@lincoln.ox.ac.uk

The Chaplain

Lincoln’s Chaplain – the Reverend Gregory Platten – is always nearby to offer guidance, spiritual counsel or just a listening ear to any problems you might encounter. He is always happy to see students at any time, offering non-judgemental advice in a completely confidential environment. He can be reached on his email (gregory.platten@lincoln.ox.ac.uk), his college phone 01865 279789 or his mobile 0789112478.
