Committee 2022 - 2023
Our dedicated committee is made up of a team of enthusiastic and hard-working individuals from the University of Leeds.
They are elected by our members at the end of the summer term and work throughout the year to continue the three main efforts of Homed: fundraising, volunteering and campaigning.
Hi, I'm Abby, a MAR Modern Languages student and Homed President this year! I fell into this role after admiring Homed through my undergrad, and I am so grateful to be able to work with such a fantastic group. I am so inspired by the generosity and commitment of all our committee members and volunteers, and it's incredible to see the impact in our local community. I am also very passionate about student activism, and keen to work on wider fundraising and awareness-raising efforts and events this year!
My name is Mya Cullum. I am Business management student currently doing a placement year in Leeds. I joined to homed committee in January 2022 as Treasurer, continuing that role into this year. In September I also became the committees event co-ordinator. I am looking forward to planning some cool events and raising money for this amazing cause.
Hi, I'm Naomi - Secretary for Homed! I joined as a Sandwich Run Coordinator last year and have really enjoyed my time here.
I'm normally in charge of schedules, meetings, taking notes, running events and general support!
Homed is a great, practical way to make a difference in your local area and a lovely way to meet like-minded friends too.
Sandwich Run Coordinator
Hi, I'm Aysha and I am a third year Law student! I am one of the two Sandwich Run Coordinators!
In this role, I run sessions every Thursday in which I and a group of volunteers hand out food and supplies to rough sleepers.
As an avid volunteer and campaigner, I have always had a strong passion for advocating for the rights of disadvantaged people. As a result, I took on this role with the goal of making a practical difference and hopefully leaving behind a strong legacy for Homed to continue its beneficial work.
Sandwich Run Coordinator
My name is Lily and I'm a 4th year Philosophy & Psychology student, focusing on studying Moral Philosophy & Ethics.
My role is Sandwich Run Coordinator, meaning I'm responsible for leading volunteers through the city, giving out sandwiches and hot drinks to people sleeping rough.
I've always loved volunteering and been passionate about fighting homelessness, so was super keen to get involved with Homed. Being on committee has allowed me to help others in a way I never thought I could and meet so many amazing people, with similar interests.
Role to be filled
Hostel Visits Coordinator
Help in Handags Coordinator / Website Manager
Hi, I'm Imo, I'm a final year student in Politics & Spanish and I'm your Help in Handbags Coordinator and Website Manager!
I first got involved with Homed in first year, when I would join the Tuesday sandwich runs. Since then, I have learned so much more about the realities of houseless living in Leeds and the unique struggles which houseless people face.
As a campaigner against domestic violence in my home county of Essex - which is an incredibly gendered issue - I feel very passionately about caring for the rights of houseless womxn.
As such, I hope to carry out plenty of meaningful work this year, both in general support of the houseless in Leeds and in support of their reproductive rights!
Hey guys! I'm Kinjal and I am a 2nd year undergraduate student studying Fashion Marketing! I am your Charity Coordinator!
I really enjoyed being a society member of Homed during my first year. I felt welcomed and valued, which made me want to continue the tradition as a committee member!
Homed is a lovely society which aims to raise awareness regarding homelessness. Not only does this society increase your chances of socialising with similar people, but also increases your insights and raises awareness about homelessness in Leeds.
Being a part of this lovely team enriches my love for volunteering and teamwork skills! We have exciting events lined up for our Homed members.
Join our family and meet new people!
