As well as being here to support students, the wellbeing team can also offer advice for staff.
If you are dealing with a student in distress, or you have concerns about their wellbeing, please refer them to the Student Hub to speak with a Student Adviser - you can either bring them over in person, or encourage the student to contact us directly. There is always an adviser on hand to speak with you and/or the student in confidence.
If you have concerns about the welfare of a student, a disclosure they have made, or you have any information relating to a safeguarding concern, please come and speak to us. We will be happy to provide you with practical advice on how to manage difficult situations, and details about our specialist support services. Please note that due to our services being confidential, we are usually not able to tell you whether a student has engaged with our services, or what actions we will take based on what you tell us.
If you wish to refer a student to us who requires complex support, or who you have non-immediate welfare concerns for, you may complete the forms below - ideally, you should gain the students' consent prior to making this referral.
