Wellbeing Services support

As a care leaver, you may have particular concerns about studying in Higher Education and the Wellbeing Service can offer you support that is specifically tailored to your needs.  Our service is confidential and can help you with:

  • Information and support with enrolling/registering.
  • Applying for your care leaver bursary.
  • Academic and personal support.
  • Liaising with accommodation providers.

You can also access our free Workshops and Groups. When appropriate, we can signpost you to other University services.

If you would like to discuss how we can help you, please contact:
