Student Welfare works with Wellbeing colleagues and staff across the University to support students who are having difficulties functioning or continuing their studies for non-academic reasons.
The team can provide guidance for staff who are supporting vulnerable students, and also works directly with students in crisis. This can involve help with prioritising, problem-solving, goal planning, developing coping strategies and offering practical support (eg helping a student access an external agency, attending a difficult meeting/interview) or simply offering a listening ear.
The Student Welfare Manager is a member of the University Case Conference Group which is in place to advise individual members of staff on how to respond to complex, risky or vulnerable situations involving students.
