At the SU, we believe in the importance of community: building a sense of unity, maintaining a social connection, and assuring safety. Hence, we have created a few platforms to show our support and contribute towards the LGBT+ community. On campus, throughout February there will be amazing flagship events to attend.
If you are experiencing difficulty reaching out for support with any issue you are facing, the links below might be exactly what you're looking for. You are never alone.
As well as signposting to these services, we have collated a couple of resources that focus on more specific areas - mental health services and trans & non-binary support. You can find out more below.
History months at uea(su) are always heaving with events that you can get involved with, we're never sitting still for too long! You've probably seen the calendar on the homepage of this hub, but we feel there are some events that you'll love and deserve a special spotlight.
