Proud to be Staffs Story: Lisa Benson

Student Wellbeing Advisor


The everyday work of our support here at Staffs has a major impact on the daily lives of our students. Lisa Benson, through being friendly, kind and approachable, has made us Proud to be Staffs. Thanks Lisa!


Lisa Benson's Story

"Lisa has helped me and guided me from the middle of the second year, she has supported me through the DSA process and has been that caring friend that I have needed during the second year of my degree. Lisa is friendly and understanding, she is really approachable and just makes you feel better about yourself when times get a bit tough. The whole wellbeing team are great but Lisa is my advisor and just makes things a little easier, can’t thank her enough."

We hope that you are as proud of your story as we are. However, if you would prefer the Students' Union to no longer display you story on our website, please email and a member of our friendly team will be happy to help.
