If we don't have the answer, we'll help you to find someone who does. We're not here to judge you and we'll always be honest and treat any issues sensitively and fairly.

*There are some occasions where your Student Support Officer will be legally required to breach confidentiality. This is only in extreme situations, for example, if we believe you are a danger to yourself or to others. We will always try to discuss this with you before taking any action.

We also have an open door policy Monday - Friday 9:00- 5:30. Call us on 0121 726 3959.
