The welfare team at the university provide practical and emotional support for students, and are often the first port of call for students experiencing difficulties. They work with other university departments and external agencies in order to offer you the best and most appropriate support.
The team deal with various issues including, but not limited to:
- Family upheaval
- Relationship breakdown
- Problems with workload
- Exam support
- Liaising with university staff on your behalf
- Issues for pregnant students
- Public health (such as TB and meningitis)
- Support after an unwanted sexual incident - view information on University and external support
They operate within the bounds of the 2018 Data Protection Act and therefore unless consent is sought, information will never be shared with a third party. However, if there is a concern for your safety or that of others’ the law requires information to be shared with relevant authorities.
