Wellbeing on Weekdays

Our programme of skills based or psycho-educational workshops, groups, social events, campaigns and faith services are led by the Wellbeing department teams

Wellbeing on Weekdays 2021 - 2022

Our programme of Wellbeing on Weekdays (WoW) events are designed to offer you skills based support to maintain your personal wellbeing and to learn skills which will become transferable in the workplace.  The events are faciliated by a range of staff from the Wellbeing department often supported by colleagues from Professional Services or the Academy. Some events will be held in person and some on MS Teams when an invite will be sent to registered participants. We've also included wellbeing at the weekend opportunities with our multifaith chaplaincy services and events. 

Event details will be removed after the WoW has taken place.

White Ribbon Day     
     Thursday 25 November (11:00am - 2:00pm) 

This month (November), as a College we are joining White Ribbon UK, a national charity working to end male violence against women through changing culture. White Ribbon UK works to prevent all forms of male violence against women, including domestic abuse, harassment, and assault. It does this by raising awareness and through proactive engagement with men and boys.  Accreditation requires a commitment by the College to deliver awareness and engagement via communications, policies, student and staff training, and to develop the overall culture. Over 100 organisations are accredited, including Surrey Police and Surrey County Council. Individual men can also take part by wearing a White Ribbon and making a promise to never commit, excuse or remain silent about violence against women.

On Thursday join the Wellbeing Department and members of staff in the Davison building foyer to find out more about the campaign, collect a white ribbon, make the promise and contribute to our 'These hands are not for hurting' posters.

11:00am - 2:00pm
