- About Staff Networks
Staff Peer Support Networks are organised by staff for staff, providing a space for staff to reach out to colleagues outside of the University’s support services such as Staff Counselling and Safety, Wellbeing and Health.
They are recognised as being crucial to the promotion of the University’s wider equality and inclusion agenda and through their activities, can help to open the door to changing the culture of an institution or organisation.
They also provide members of staff who identify with a protected group or who have specific interests, with a safe, welcoming and practical platform; where exchanging information, generating and sharing views and new ideas can be expressed in an informal environment. The networks also provide peer support, networking opportunities and social activities.
If you are considering setting up a staff network, please read the Staff Networks guidelines (Word document).
