Supporting students with disabilities, mental health problems or specific learning difficulties
Enabling Services provides wide variety of support for students who have disabilities, mental health problems or specific learning difficulties. Our expert team can provide advice and support relating to your studies, both while you are preparing for University and throughout your time here.
We offer a range of appointment options: Face to face, telephone, and Skype. These can be arranged by either attending our Drop In, 1 pm – 3 pm, (every day in term time), by emailing on email@example.com or ringing us on +44(0)23 8059 7726. Skype appointments are helpful if you are not based at or able to visit the Highfield Campus.
Our drop-in sessions are an opportunity to meet with an Enabling Services advisor to find out about the support available. Come along to the Student Services Centre (Building 37 - Highfield Campus) and check in at the Enabling Services desk near the back of the atrium between 1pm and 3pm Monday to Friday during term-time, and 1pm and 3pm Monday, Wednesday or Friday during vacations. See the bottom of this page for a short video about our drop-in.
The First Support team can be contacted during office hours to arrange support for students who may be facing difficulties in their life or dealing with a crisis. To contact the team call +44(0)23 8059 7488 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you require immediate or emergency support please click here. Between 6pm and 8am contact the Out of Hours service for very urgent situations on +44(0)23 8059 2811.
We run a series of Wellbeing and Study Workshops on Wednesday afternoons throughout the academic year that cover a range of topics including relaxation techniques, coping with stress, organising your studies and exam preparation.
We also run Mindful Monday sessions and a 4 Weeks of Mindfulness course to provide an opportunity to explore further the practice of mindfulness.
