Student Parent Group @TUoS

Updated: Feb 8, 2021



Being a parent is rewarding but can be tough at the best of times and under the current circumstances, it can make juggling responsibilities very difficult. Meeting other parents in a similar situation can be a helpful way to feel supported and offer an opportunity to share and hear experiences about the highs and lows of being a student and a parent.


The Student Wellbeing Service is running an online student-parent peer support group for student parents from all faculties. The purpose of the group is to provide an informal space to connect with each other in a supportive and non-judgmental environment, with a focus on wellbeing. The sessions are facilitated by a trained Wellbeing Advisor who also has experience of being a parent.


The group will run once a month, on the last Tuesday of each month, at 1:00 pm for 45 minutes starting on Tuesday the 23rd of February. It will initially be offered as an online meet but with a view to moving to a face to face offer when we return to campus.
