STUDENT CARERS’ WORKING GROUP:
Fact: Student carers receive almost no financial support.
Fact: Up to 6.5 million people in the UK may be acting as a carer for a relative or friend with a mental or physical illness, or disability.
Student carers need support.
CUSU wants to hear from current Cambridge students who have experience of acting as a carer. Maybe you travel home to look after an elderly parent. Maybe you stay up late at night to support the friend on your staircase with depression. Whatever your experience, CUSU wants to hear from you, so that we can campaign for the University and colleges to provide appropriate financial and pastoral support. If you have any experiences you’d like to share, please contact Chris, the CUSU/GU Welfare & Rights Officer using the email address below.

exist. We hope to provide a platform for the voices of those who have had
experiences of mental health issues and explores the very real stories of

CAMFM LGBTQ PROJECT
A message from CamFM:
I’m in the process of planning a documentary I’m hoping to make next term.
The topic will be why we seem to have far greater hangups in society about
discussing non-heterosexual sexualities with small children (primary school
age) in ways we don’t seem to with heterosexual ones. For instance, we are
comfortable telling young children that mummies and daddies love each other
very much, but many wouldn’t feel quite so comfortable saying the same
about a same-sex couple, even if the conversation was not of a sexual
As part of this, I’m looking for LGBTQ students in Cambridge to share their
experiences. Have you ever had to introduce a new partner to younger
siblings/nephews/nieces etc? Do your younger relatives have a concept of
non-hetero sexuality, and where did they get it from? Do you have any tips
on how to float the subject? Or are you intimidated by the thought of doing
so, and wouldn’t know where to begin?
Any thoughts or experiences you have on this are most welcome. Please note
– I am specifically looking for LGBTQ students to share their experiences
for this particular feature. Other students’ thoughts are welcome, but
won’t be included in the feature!
All responses will be treated in strictest confidence, and nothing will be
broadcast or recorded without your express permission.
If you can help, please send your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org by 20TH

SEXPERT TRAINING – 22nd, 2pm, CUSU CONFERENCE ROOM!
We’re looking for eager individuals to become trained Sexperts to form part
of a student run Sexual Health Outreach team, to help with activities
during Sexual Health Awareness Wee (Week 3) and organise future events with
CUSU and other organisations who are committed to promoting sexual health.
Do you want to meet new people? Want to learn more about sexual health? Do
you want to have fun for a good cause?
Becoming a Sexpert is an enjoyable yet rewarding way to meet new people,
talk to students about sexual health and get involved with campaigning for
improved sexual health awareness. Time commitment is flexible – you can
commit yourself to as much or as little as you want!
What do Sexperts do?
After an afternoon’s training on STI’s, HIV, consent and confidentiality,
Sexperts will be able to coordinate a Chlamydia Screening Drive within
their own college, faculty or society which should only involve securing a
location, promoting the event, dispensing and then collecting, the self
testing kits which will be given to them. Running this sort of event can be
done in coordination with other events, charity fundraising, a general
welfare event, or any other way you think of!
It’s a great way to hone your social, organizational, peer-support and
peer-education skills, and will look great on your CV, and involve only a
limited commitment and time use (but with exciting opportunities to expand
next year as the Sexperts programme gets bigger and better)
