Inclusive Support Service

Inclusive Support provide short-term, practical one-to-one support for students who identify as having a mental health difficulty, AD(H)D or as being on the autism spectrum, to help you get the most out of your time at university.

We provide support in the following areas:


This support is not talking therapy, and is based on practical tasks and goal setting.


How do I access Inclusive Support?

To access this service, you need to identify as having

  • a mental health difficulty
  • AD(H)D
  • an autism spectrum condition

You must also have disclosed (or be willing to disclose) this on your university record. You do not need to provide medical evidence or proof of a diagnosis.  You can read more about disclosing a disability and what this means here.


You must be referred by a member of staff in order to access Inclusive Support. If you would like to be referred to Inclusive Support, you should contact a member of Student Support Services staff. The following staff can make a referral:

Student Support Officer
Wellbeing Practitioner
Disability Adviser
Study needs Assessor
International Experience Adviser
Employability Adviser
Students’ Union Adviser

The staff member will talk to you about what support you can access, and complete a referral form.

What happens after I have been referred to Inclusive Support?

You will be invited to attend an initial assessment appointment where your needs will be discussed, and an action plan will be written to outline what support will be provided. You can then access up to six support sessions.
