Support for students and staff during the present situation

Contact details for our chaplains are available below.

As religious services and gatherings are currently suspended, some groups are planning to stream prayers and religious services, to enable all those who wish to join to be able to do so.

Some of the Student Union Faith societies are also working to provide additional support to their members and others.

You can find further information on our Facebook group.
