Emergency support

Please be aware that the counselling service is not an emergency service. If you are experiencing a crisis or emergency and you have the SafeZone app, you can click the large, red 'emergency' button to get in contact with Safeguarding services if you are on campus. If you are off campus, this will put you through to your local emergency services. 

If you do not have the SafeZone app, you can contact emergency services by calling 999 from any phone.

Additionally, you can phone the following 24-hour helpline:
