HARNESSING THE POWER OF SMALLTALK.
IT'S BEEN A STRANGE FEW MONTHS...
Starting a new year at university is never without a few nerves.
However, this year, many of us will face new and unexpected challenges. We are presented with uncertainty, change and an entirely different start to what we had expected.
To help each other through and make the most out of university, it's really important that we support each other, keep talking and leave no-one behind.
Throughout our campaign, we aim to empower you to harness the power of small talk. We encourage you to take every opportunity to check in with your mates, find out about others experiences and reach out if you need. Whether it be over a quick coffee in the park, a scenic walk or simply a chat whilst cooking dinner.
We'll help you find your way to simply ask 'how are you doing?' this October and feel confident in having a supportive, effective conversation whatever the answer.
It could make someone's day. It could save someone's life.
Follow the campaign on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Get involved in the conversation using #SmallTalkBigChange.
