A message of support for students and staff affected by the invasion of Ukraine
Trinity Laban is shocked by the current events in Ukraine and fully endorses University UK’s statement on the issue, condemning the unprovoked attack on the country’s citizens.
We recognise that the situation will be incredibly distressing for those with direct links to the region.
Our priority is and always will be the safety and welfare of our students and staff. We have been, and will continue to be, in contact with those affected to offer our support.
We are proud of being a diverse, international community and ask that everyone continues to respect and support each other.
Support for students
If you are struggling with academic or performance commitments, or finding it difficult to focus on your studies at this time, please talk to your Personal Tutor, Programme Leader or Coordinator.
The Student Services team is also on hand to support you. They can talk with you about in-person and online options for counselling and mental health support are available.
You can also get in touch with TLSU – whether it’s for academic or pastoral support, financial advice, wellbeing or even just for a chat – you can find out more information from their TLSU Facebook pages or website.
Please remember that a range of online support is always available to you, wherever you are. This includes 24/7 mental health support from Togetherall and the UK government’s Student Minds initiative.
We do not tolerate any harassment directed against anyone. If you experience bullying or harassment, or witness any examples of bullying or harassment, please report this to James Hitchins, Head of Student Services & Accessibility.
Support for staff
Please speak to your line manager, or to a Mental Health First Aider, if you are concerned that the situation is affecting your ability to work.
You can also visit the staff intranet page for guidance on mental health.
A confidential, external counselling service is available to all employees and their family members for free. Should you wish to use this service, please contact the Counselling Helpline number on 0117 934 2121.
