Wellbeing Overview

Wellbeing in the Engineering Department

Cambridge has a university-wide network of Wellbeing Advocates to provide guidance on wellbeing issues to staff. There are two Advocates from each Department. In Engineering we now have two Advocates, Claire Barlow from the academic staff, based at Trumpington St and Maggie Harriss from the administrative staff, based at IfM at West Cambridge.

Expecting only two Wellbeing Advocates to provide comprehensive coverage in a Department the size of ours is over-optimistic. So our two Advocates will lead a team of volunteer local contacts who will form a support network operating within the Department. In many areas, these will already be the obvious ‘go-to’ person: the friendly face, the sympathetic person, the voice of sanity. These local contacts will know the people around them and can provide a very valuable service to our community.
