If you have any specific issues you would like to discuss in confidence prior to starting college, you can contact the Student Wellbeing Team or the College Chaplain by email – WellbeingTeam@reaseheath.ac.uk.
Looked After Children (LAC)
We have a designated member of staff who can help facilitate a smooth transition into college for looked after children and care leavers. This support continues throughout their college experience.
Reaseheath College has a Chaplain on campus who is based next to The Wellbeing Hub. The Chaplain is happy to hold discussions on any aspect of faith or morality and is available to students of all faith and none. A weekly faith group is available to all who want to meet others who share their faith or hold different faith values to themselves. The Chaplain runs ‘MC Time’ and ‘Rooted’. MC Time takes place every Thursday from 12pm until 2pm in the Bield bar where you can meet like minded people with a slice of pizza! He also supports many Reaseheath College functions and is happy to offer advice or general support whenever needed. A prayer room is available next to The Wellbeing Hub for use at any time. The Chaplain also supports the Christian Union who meet every Wednesday at 12:30pm in the prayer room.
College Counselling Service
The College Counselling Service can help with specific problems on a regular basis if you need support. Counselling provides a relaxed setting where you can talk freely in a way that is rarely possible with friends or tutors. Referrals are made through your Wellbeing Advisor. The Student Wellbeing Service can also refer you to outside agencies if necessary.

The Wellbeing Service is a confidential service. The Wellbeing Team do not communicate with tutors or other members of staff without your expressed consent.
