Jess Hindley- Your Welfare Officer

Jess Hindley (She/Her)

I’m Jess, your Student Officer for Welfare. I studied an MA in Conflict Transformation and Social Justice here at Queen's after completing my undergraduate in Politics at Lancaster University.

As a student activist, I worked on several campaigns including a successful rent strike in Lancaster that saved students over £1000 on their rent. Since coming to Belfast, I have continued my housing activism and have been actively involved with the abortion rights movement.

The role of a welfare officer is broad, including housing, safety, and wellbeing. I will bring my experience fighting for students to this role so that I can lead impactful campaigns on issues that matter to you.

My top three priorities for the year are:

  • Drug Harm Reduction
  • Creating a Consent Culture at Queen's
  • Fighting for Student Renters
