Peer Support

Peer Support

The Peer Support Programme is a voluntary assistance program, which is designed to assist you with any concerns you have regarding your personal or study life. Peer Supporters offer support based on the principals of listening, sharing experiences and having an equal relationship rather than providing expert or clinical advice. 

Peer Support involves emotional support. The reason for this emotional support will depend on the your situation, for example, questioning ones gender and/or sexuality, homesickness, stress caused by study workload, difficulty making friends and/or socialising, a personal or professional crisis.
