Wellbeing

Our Student Wellbeing Team is here to help with all aspects of your wellbeing at college. There may be a time when you need some advice and extra support to help solve a problem that is not going away or to get some advice so you can make the best decision for yourself.

Across all campuses, students can make an appointment or drop in to meet with a Student Wellbeing Officer every day between 12pm and 2pm in the Wellbeing Hubs. You can also request an appointment with a Counsellor at drop-in.

You can contact the Team in a variety of other ways:

Be safe

We are committed to keeping our students safe from harm, which may include abuse, online danger, neglect or radicalisation. Our role involves keeping you safe from accidents, crime and bullying, and actively promoting your welfare and positive life experiences in a healthy, safe, diverse and welcoming environment.

If you have any concerns, worries or queries about your safety or wellbeing, please contact the Student Wellbeing Team on 01656 302 302 ext. 488 or on wellbeing@bridgend.ac.uk. You can find information about our approach to safeguarding on our Safeguarding page.

Be well

The Student Wellbeing Team can give advice and information across a range of topics, such as:

  • Healthy lifestyle choices, nutrition, giving up smoking
  • Managing your finances such as budgeting and saving
  • Ways to improve your mental health, goal setting and managing anxiety positively

Be active

There are many opportunities for you to enjoy physical activity in College including table tennis, football, basketball, Zumba, rugby, yoga and mindfulness, to name just a few!

If you feel passionate about being active and leading a healthy lifestyle, you can apply to become an Active Ambassador. You can find out more about being an Ambassador on our Student Voice page.

Young adult carers and looked after young people

If you have responsibilities at home, or there is a change in where you live (such as a change of placement or a move into independent living) and you need advice or guidance, please contact the Student Wellbeing Team for support.
