Student Safe Spot

Student Safe Spot Scheme


The Student Safe Spot scheme was established in 2009 to aid students in seeking refuge from approved public bodies and businesses when experiencing a distressing situation. This campaign is run by the union in partnership with City Centre Beat and Bradford Police. The campaign is delivered by the Community and Welfare Officer – Subira Ismail in conjunction with student ambassadors and volunteers.

Previous Activities undertaken by the Safe Spot Scheme included:

  • Wellbeing Week 2015 – Information stand for students and staff
