Supporting Your Members

Use our guides on Engaging Postgraduate Members and Supporting and Welcoming Members with Disabilities to help make your group welcoming and inclusive for everyone.

If one of your members is in need of advice or support, there are a wide range of services that can help which are detailed in our support handout.

If you experience or witness an incident of harassment, bullying or discrimination, the University's Report and Support tool offers a quick and easy way to let someone know and find out what support is available.

We offer First Aid, Mental Health Awareness and Mental Health First Aid training throughout the year. You can find and sign up to all our training sessions through the Student Leader Training Calendar.

It's important that you keep records of your membership safe and secure so make sure to follow our data protection guidance. We strongly encourage you to set up memberships on your webpage as this keeps the data of your members secure.
