Furness College, how did week one treat you? Loving uni still? Dont worry if you are feeling a little overwhelmed, it will get easier to manage and if not make sure you speak to someone to ensure you have access to the right support.
Look After Your Mate (LAYM)
We know that students turn to other students when experiencing difficulties and so we will be running several ‘Look After Your Mate’ workshops throughout the term that will give you the necessary tips and tools to support a friend in need. Workshops include:
–Key practical tips for supporting a friend
–Spotting signs in a friend
–How to start a conversation
–How to support a friend: Listening and learning.
–Signposting to support
–Looking after your own wellbeing as a supporter
Best of all, the workshop is FREE!!! It counts towards the Lancaster Award and is a great addition to your CV. It is also a very valuable workshop for Fresher’s reps, JCR reps and anyone in a supportive role.
This workshop has been developed by Student Minds
As well as the LAYM workshop we have an amazing welfare team here in Furness college, the JCR and FURCAT team will be on hand to talk to you whenever you need! We understand that settling into a new home, meeting new people, moving away and a complete change of life can be confusing, challenging and difficult. We are here to make sure you can get the support, if needed. Along with support for any other issue, no matter how big or small. Especially to help after the first week at uni, for 1st/2nd/3rd.4th years and/or staff!
Email the FURCAT team on firstname.lastname@example.org
or send a message to our Welfare Page on facebook, or look out for any members of our welfare team, or JCR for that matter 🙂
