Students get our help to navigate local services

Our team has been sharing our Student Health Guide with 'Freshers' arriving in Reading.

More than 120 students dropped by our stall (pictured above) during the Freshers Fair week held at the University of Reading for new students.

Students snapped our QR code with their phones to go to our updated, online Student Health Guide, which we've been publishing since 2018 to help college and university learners navigate local services.

Freshers also filled out our short survey which asked them about their top health issue and their ability to personally deal with Covid. Findings will be published later in October.


We'll be sharing bookmarks stamped with the Student Health Guide QR code (pictured) with GP surgeries and local wellbeing services that interact regularly with students.
