#Who are we?

The Welfare Collective by name focuses on the collective welfare of UTS students.

It aims to hold regular collective meetings to discuss initiatives that would help us achieve this outcome and action those initiatives with the support of the UTS Students’ Association and Student Representative Council (SRC). It is the job of the welfare collective to organise projects and initiatives that encourage access to affordable food, transport and housing, mental health support, academic support, financial assistance and free legal services to UTS students both on and off university campus.

The collective aspires to complete projects that benefit all UTS students and welcomes anyone who is interested in being a part of this vision.

#2019 Outlook

In 2019 the welfare collective aims to make real change in the support offered to those students struggling at UTS.

Core issues we hope to tackle over the coming months are centered around students currently in low socioeconomic positions who face many obstacles and need to work often multiple jobs in order to cover the cost of their accommodation, study supplies, and other basic living expenses such as power, water and food. My goal for this year is to ensure wider marketing and communication of the services that are available to us in order to ensure not only the availability of crucial resources, but also their accessibility.

It is essential that we as students are aware of how to utilise the services that we are paying for. This year I aim to build a strong collective to speak up for the often-forgotten students who are constantly fighting to stay in university. Students' needs are often unmet, under-met or simply overlooked. I am determined to provide a voice to students and representation for the wider student body, particularly to those from lower socio-economic backgrounds, to ensure that the services needed by them are delivered.
