The university has a number of resources and services to support both Personal Academic Tutors and students with students’ physical and mental health. These include (click on each heading to open the drop-down menu):
Does your tutee have a Disability, Mental Health condition, Specific Learning Difficulty or other Medical Condition that affects their study?
The university’s Disability & Dyslexia Team provides support including dyslexia screening, creation of Learning Support Plans and the coordination of specialised 121 support.
If your tutee has not declared a disability to the university previously, then you can tell us on their behalf through the Student Disability Disclosure Policy.
You should check whether they already have a Learning Support Plan (LSP) in place and ask them to contact the team if not. If they have an LSP, you may wish to discuss how the recommendations are applied on their course.

Signs of safety & cause for concern
The signs of safety model for assessing risk is available to assist Tutors to assess concerns regarding a tutees well-being. Tutors’ concerns can also be mapped onto the signs of safety retention chart, in order to assess the likelihood of retention issues. Tutors with concerns about a tutee can consult the cause for concern framework in order to find the appropriate services to contact regarding their concerns.
