Peer Supporters

The Peer Support Programme (see poster below) is a scheme run across the University by the Counselling Service. A team of students from the JCR and MCR, across a range of years and subjects, have been trained in active listening support - and you can contact either should you wish to speak with them. They are trained to help with welfare concerns and work to strict confidentiality rules. They have access to a range of resources they can refer you to, or can spend some time with you to support you through hard times. 

Peer supporters abide by a Code of Practice, attend regular supervisions to consolidate their training and develop their skills, and are available to be contacted for any difficulty big or small you might encounter during term. They are available to talk to any student confidentially. They can also be found at teas and events organised by the JCR and MCR.


For Trinity Term 2022:

Leo Typrak (Peer Support Co-ordinator)


Amongst our Peer supporters we have Peers of colour and Rainbow Peers, as well as Peer supports who are members of both the JCR and the MCR.

LMH is passionate about nurturing a supportive and healthy environment for our whole community. We have a team of health professionals, tutors, support staff, and students dedicated to provide help and advice. These pages introduce you to the wellbeing team and their roles. The Oxford University Student Union's Student Advice Service is also a great resource. On this page, see who does what for wellbeing, and how you can contact them.
