#LeicsTalk Support

Here in the Students’ Union, and across the University and Community, there are plenty of services available for you to talk to if you need support.  Whether you’re looking for academic advice, someone to chat to about your wellbeing, welfare guidance or a specific support group, there’s something for everyone. 

We want you to feel comfortable and able to speak up about your problems before they get worse, so we’ve put together a list of where you can go for help.  Just click on the links in the sidebar for information on Union, University and Community support available. 

If you can’t find the service for you, email leicstalk@le.ac.uk and we’ll point you in the right direction.  We have a team of friendly, helpful staff waiting to hear from you, so don’t be a stranger.  Let’s talk – we’re here to help!
