Who’s Who

People to contact if you need help, or just a chat!


Welfare Officers: Ottilie Lloyd-Thomas and Joe Shalom

Welfare is extremely important to QJCR, and with this in mind we have a three person welfare team! Emily and Tom can always be found if you’re feeling down and just want a chat, and they also have loads of sexual health supplies and information on student issues. They have lots of FREE condoms, pregnancy tests and chlamydia tests as well as wads of information to give out on issues like stress and procrastination. If you want a chat about ANYTHING, just get in touch.

LGBT+ Officer: Jamie Braidley

LGBT stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender, and Jamie works as part of the welfare team to offer advice and support for anyone who considers themselves to fall into any of these categories. Like the rest of the welfare team, Jamie can provide free condoms and other sexual health supplies, but also organises LGBT social events throughout the year. Check out the LGBT page on the QJCR website to find out more!

JCR President: Leyla Sudbury

Though the welfare team usually help to coordinate welfare through the JCR, Leyla is in a perfect position to communicate with different departments, and take any problems to more senior members of College if necessary.

Your Tutor

Your tutor is a senior member of college designed to offer you academic support. You can go to your tutor with any problems, personal or academic. They are also the person who will help you if you decide you wish to degrade, if you get into serious financial difficulty, or if you wish to apply for excess residence or a bursary for vacation work or travel. Each tutor has a set drop-in time, that can be found on the Queens’ website here: http://www.queens.cam.ac.uk/student-information/tutorial-information/tut…. You may also contact any other tutor if yours is unavailable, or if you would just prefer to talk to someone else. If you can’t find a tutor in an emergency, the porters will be able to get hold of one for you.

The Senior Tutor: James Kelly

James Kelly is the Senior Tutor of Queens’, but don’t let this title put you off. He is very keen to improve welfare for students, and is incredibly approachable. He is available to help you with any of the issues that you might see your regular tutor for, and is useful if you find that you don’t get along with your tutor. He is available in Essex 8, Monday 0900-1100 or by appointment (email: jwk23@cam.ac.uk). You can also approach Dr Kelly through the JCR welfare team.
