Melanie Torrance SWC Projects and Facilities Management Officer

Staff Wellbeing Champion


I’ve worked at the University for six years in Humanities and Social Sciences then in the School of Management. I am interested in promoting healthy ways of working, I'm the Health & Safety Coordinator for the School, organise wellbeing events. I’m particularly interested in helping women navigate the menopause and help to host the regular University Menopause Meetups.

Wellbeing Statement

I feel it’s important to raise awareness of mental health issues and to break the stigma around poor mental health. I want to help create a culture where we can speak about mental health problems in the same way as we would physical health and where all staff have access to the wellbeing services they need.


I love reading and listen to lots of audio books, I'm hoping to write a book – some day! I'm keen on experimenting with the use of natural dyes and bring this into my craft pastimes and I love to bake and use this skill in the many university wellbeing cake sales.
