‘Enhancing student wellbeing through social prescribing’ is a HEFCW funded project, which is being run in partnership with Wrexham Glyndwr University and lead by Prof Carolyn Wallace. 

We have received funding to create a model of support which enhances student wellbeing at the university. Alongside the project, we will be carrying out an evaluation exercise to get a better understanding of students’ wellbeing needs.  

About the project

Social Prescribing is a structured approach for linking people, such as students, with appropriate university and community resources. It's purpose is to improve individual wellbeing.

Take part in our online activities 

We would like you to engage in three separate online activities over the next 6-8 weeks. The activities will include a group concept mapping exercise (GCM), followed by grouping and rating activities all related to wellbeing. Each activity will last no more than 20-30 minutes and you can start and come back to the activity at a time that suits you. The purpose is to gain an understanding of what has affected your individual wellbeing over the last year.   

How to sign-up 

If you are interested in participating in our wellbeing exercise, please contact socialprescribing@southwales.ac.uk. You will be contacted with further information and sent a consent form for you to complete. Once you have returned the consent form, you will be provided with a link to the activities and a unique username and password.  

As a thank you for taking part, you will have the opportunity to be entered into a prize draw for a £25 gift voucher. The draw will take place at the end of the Group Concept Mapping study.
