Students' lives extend beyond the classroom. NUS Wales recognises this by working on issues that deliver better welfare for its members.
Mental health is a serious issue for many students, and they have the right to access appropriate care and support.
NUS Wales has collaborated with Gofal to create a toolkit for students, students’ union officers and staff on mental health. These toolkits include guidance on the issues, how to campaign on them and how to support discussions on mental health and are designed to develop knowledge amongst officers and staff.
Last year saw the first mental health bootcamp for officers and staff from further and higher education across Wales, which we hope to repeat during this academic year.
Students have the right to access affordable, safe and secure housing during their time studying. We are working to ensure new Welsh legislation on housing benefits students rather than discriminates against them.
