Returning to the new normal with Student Life

Returning to the new normal with Student Life

Young person charity Student Life has moved to bring back team members from furlough to rejoin the skeleton team that operated the organisation during lockdown.

The message from Board Director Rachel Mitchell is simple “We’re back in the office and it’s time to settle back into our new normal.  It’s been a challenging few months for everyone and we’ve been no exception, as we’ve had to adapt quickly to allow us to continue to support young people across all aspects of our projects. Our co-Editor team has been working hard to send out a variety of content briefs and the period of assessment also saw the launch of our new digital communications platform, which makes working with us so much easier for our collaborating young people.  We are looking forward to delivering our projects back into education settings from September and whilst we will adapt, there are still many ways to be involved with Student Life”.

CEO Richard Stewart is equally as motivated as ever “Our thanks go out to local councils in the areas that we operate, local councillors and other third sector funders, whose continuing funding at this time enables us to continue rolling out our project in schools and colleges in Suffolk and beyond.  We hugely appreciate this support which has been ongoing now for 3 years, as we continue to spearhead and champion mental health awareness amongst young people.  We are looking forward to offering training courses again in the coming weeks and months, as we continue to recognise that all of our mental health and wellbeing is as important now as ever.
