Students Union buddy scheme
Students Union Buddy Scheme
Recognising that this is a difficult time for many of our students, the Students’ Union have recently launched a Buddy Scheme for students who are isolating, based off-campus, or simply want someone to chat to.
This scheme is similar to the Check-In and Chat scheme, but its distinguishing feature is that it is peer-led rather than offered by University staff.
Students will be matched with another student (a ‘peer buddy’) based on interests or course for weekly phone or video catchups, providing some social contact and the chance to make a new friend.
Students can sign up to the scheme using this online form.
For students who are interested in volunteering as a peer buddy, they can apply through the Volunteer Hub.
More information can be found about the scheme on the SU website.
Best wishes and take care,
The Student Wellbeing Team
