Introduction to inclusive support

The Inclusive Support team offer one-to-one, practical support sessions for students who identify as having a mental health difficulty, AD(H)D or as being on the autism spectrum. You don’t need a formal diagnosis to access support.  
Support provided includes goal setting, time management and organisation, helping you to improve attendance and engagement on your course, facilitating access to other support services and helping you to enjoy social opportunities and make the most of your time at University. 

How can I access this service?

Speak to your SSA if you would like to be referred for support - appointments are currently delivered by the phone or on Zoom. The 1-1 support is tailored to your needs and is based on the goals you want to achieve and the skills you want to develop.

Where can I find out more?

Visit the Inclusive Support website for more information on the service and how they can support your studies.
