Welfare Advice

The Student Welfare Adviser provides information, advice and guidance for prospective and current students on a wide range of practical and personal issues.

Most of our work is about helping you with your rights and entitlements, including:

·         Planning a budget, money management

·         Dealing with debt

·         Financial support for student parents (childcare costs etc.)

·         Welfare benefits and tax credits

·         Disability benefits

·         Housing rights

We can also help you to access support for personal issues including:

·         Alcohol and substance Misuse

·         Sexual Health

·         Domestic Violence

·         And any other issues which you may be concerned about - if you're not sure if we can help please get in touch and ask.

As well as helping you to find solutions to problems, we can also give you information and advice to help you to avoid problems before they happen.

Everything that is discussed with the welfare adviser is confidential; and they will not speak to family member’s friends or authorities, unless you specifically request that they do so; or the law requires them to.

The Welfare Adviser, Tammy Oyekanmi, can be contacted on 0121 476 1181 ext. 2620, or via email: ssg@newman.ac.uk
