The LGBT Network has several welfare officers available to listen to you if you have any problems at university, help you to feel comfortable during your time at university, and can signpost you to relevant services that the university, SU and the city itself provides. Your welfare officers run events throughout the year that offer you a chance to meet your welfare officers in a safe environment to discuss various LGBT issues.

Alternatively, you can email your SB Officer (suttonbonington@uonsulgbt.org) and Welfare Officers (welfare@uonsulgbt.org and trans@uonsulgbt.org) at any time with complete confidentiality with any welfare questions you may have.

Discussion Groups

We run discussion groups regularly throughout the semester. The topics are always thought-provoking and the tea flows freely!

T and Coffee

Discussion group and cafe meet. This is a trans* only space and is open only to students (inc. committee) who identify as trans*, genderqueer or outside the gender binary.

University of Nottingham Counselling Service

The University Counselling Service offers a variety of groups and workshops across the campuses (Uni Park, Jubilee and Sutton Bonington.) This semester dates are spread out across October and November – but if you miss a session and wanted to go, get in touch with the Service and see if they can work something out or have resources to send you: http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/counselling/index.aspx
