Find your cause
The University is committed to helping as many students as possible. Funds and resources have been diverted to have the biggest impact. Well-being services are prioritising those who need mental health support. Over time, we’ve been working closely with our Students’ Representative Council (SRC) to ensure that students receive the support and guidance they need.
Of course, many students have families and loved ones who can offer financial and emotional support but sadly this isn’t the case for all. Students from low-income households, those estranged from their families, international students, and students from care backgrounds, find it difficult to reach out to families and friends as issues of mental health are often neglected in our society.
Since the start of the pandemic, we’ve seen an increase in the number of students’ requests for emergency financial support. The knock-on effect of Covid-19 means many students are now facing serious financial hardship.
Staff in Student Affairs have been working tirelessly to help as many students as possible but as we all continue to face the challenges of a global pandemic, we know more students will need urgent financial support in the weeks and months ahead.
