How to access the Wellbeing Advisers

We cannot offer support in person at the moment, so the Wellbeing Drop-in is running via an email system.

Please email the Wellbeing Team at wellbeing (@gold.ac.uk) to ask a question or book an appointment at a time that is convenient.

Appointments will be conducted via the telephone, Skype or Microsoft Teams.
