Safeguarding and Welfare Advisors

NewVIc is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our students. All students should be kept safe from harm, including any form of abuse, sexual exploitation or radicalisation. We protect our students from extremists who advocate violence, religious hatred, or racist, sexist or homophobic views.

Our safeguarding and welfare advisers also help with:

  • housing/homelessness
  • finance and benefits
  • immigration issues
  • health matters

If there is something an adviser cannot help you with, they will refer you to an external agency to get the practical support you need. You can also contact our Student Safeguarding & Welfare Advisors;

LGBTQ+ support

At NewVIc we work hard to ensure that the college is a safe space for LGBTQ+ people to study and work. We have a weekly support group for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) students and their straight allies. This group provides a supportive and safe environment, promotes LGBTQ+ awareness through events and helps the college community to be a safe place for all students regardless of their sexual orientation.
