In response to Government advice relating to the Covid 19 pandemic we have moved some of our support services to video-call, telephone appointments and email guidance. You are still able to access confidential advice and support through these platforms and an Adviser will work with you to deliver this in the most accessible way. If you would prefer a face to face service please let the Adviser know.
We know that the current situation is having a serious impact on anyone facing relationship violence and abuse. If you feel unsafe with the person/people you are living with, please see this safety advice from Women's Aid

If you think you or someone you know has been bullied or harassed there is a variety of support options available to both students and staff.
