These calls will be friendly and relaxed; if you need an outlet to offload what you’re going through, or just fancy a chat with someone outside of your bubble, let us know via the following link and we will arrange for one of our volunteers to give you a call at a time that suits you. 

We've also teamed up with a number of peer-led support groups across the University that offer a free, relaxed way to support your mental fitness.

IMPORTANT UPDATE FOR VOLUNTEERS

WE NEED YOU!

VOLUNTEERING OPPORTUNITY – 1:1 and group support for Bristol students in need of a chat during COVID-19 restrictions.

PROJECT:TALK Bristol Society is looking for student volunteers to make 1:1 phone calls to fellow students under quarantine or struggling with isolation due to the current COVID-19 restrictions placed upon them. These calls will be friendly and relaxed – we all know that sometimes it can just be really nice to have someone to talk to.

We believe it is now, more important than ever, to be proactive in our support for one another. We hope this initiative will provide students with a space to chat and make this tough time a little bit easier. 

By donating an hour or two a week, to suit your schedule you will be able to make a positive impact on the wellbeing of our peers. We will provide full training for the role accredited by PROJECT:TALK CIC, and ensure volunteers are well supported.

 

Certificates of service will be awarded to volunteers!

If you would like to get involved please follow the sign up link below, if you have any questions please email us on bristoluni@projecttalk.org.uk.

Our appeal will raise money to support students whilst in lockdown. We will work with students involved, local experts and the University to determine the best form of support and are aware that this may change so our response will be dynamic. Over the next few days and weeks, we will be carrying out an analysis of need. These funds will allow us to do the very best we can to support these students, being proactive in the resources we provide whilst catering for those who need more formal support.
