Our practical study support for students with a mental health condition, autism-spectrum disorder or specific learning difficulty is expanding into new areas.

We have recently conducted a very successful recruitment exercise to bring some excellent new Mentors into our Specialist Support Team. This team of Mentors work with students who face barriers to achieving their full potential at university or college because of an existing disability or health condition. Funding for the service can be through the Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) or, privately funded by the student.

The new Mentors share our ethos of a student centred service. They work with the student to develop study solutions that work for them; recognising that some approaches won’t work for some individuals. They hold professional qualifications and have a mix of practical and theoretical perspectives to use in their interactions with students.

We are now able to offer our mentoring support across the south, south west, north west of England and across London. We will acknowledge a request for support within one working day. If we don’t have capacity immediately we commit to being honest and giving the student an opportunity to start their support with another provider. If we say we have capacity, we do! We will agree date, time and place for the mentor to meet with the student to draw-up together a plan for the support. We aim to provide the conditions for students to get the very best out of their studies.
