Alison Borgelin SWC Social and Policy Sciences Department Co-ordinator
Staff Wellbeing Champion
My current role is Department Coordinator working closely with the Head of Department as PA. I really enjoy working with the staff in SPS, they’re a great group of people. I also work alongside the other Department Coordinators in the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.
I am passionate about supporting anyone struggling with poor mental health, but I’m also keen to help promote good mental health and wellbeing to everybody. I believe it is so important to break the taboo and silence when it comes to talking about our mental health.
My big passion is ceramics and I’ve been an on/off potter for over 30 years. Making a pot on the potter’s wheel is very therapeutic and mindful and really slows my mind down. I also love getting out for walks in nature and breaks away in our mini campervan to my other happy place, the seaside.
