With the longer nights and chilly weather, it is easier for students (who will be staying back in Plymouth during the winter break) to lock themselves away and suffer from loneliness, isolation, and depression. We are well aware of this, and we have planned a way out.
Our proposed solution is to reach out to you to have student-led activities all-round the winter break. As an SU, we will vet, support, and promote these activities, but it will be entirely student-led and student-focused. So, if you have an activity planned or an idea of an activity you want to do, please sign up through the buddy scheme. Our aim is to create a community for students to meet each other and develop friendships. If you are wanting support over the festive period and want someone to go to activities with, this scheme is for you. We will try and pair you up with someone we think will be a good fit for you, making the whole process as easy as possible.
