Physical, Mental, Emotional, Social Care and Aged Care needs


We will, as far as is reasonably practical, provide Events that are accessible to all. We understand that students who have particular physical, mental or social care needs, may require additional support during an Event. When booking to attend an Event, you agree to inform us of the type and level of need you (or those you are making a booking for) may have. If there is a significant need, you must contact our Event Booking Manager prior to making a booking. We cannot provide help that would normally be provided by a qualified or trained person. Our Events are not a substitute for professional Health Care that an individual may need or be receiving, and we do not claim to diagnose or cure any condition of mind, body or spirit. Our Events can support wellbeing for mind, body and spirit in a way that is needed, alongside any professional Health Care. The Events can only be used as a complement to professional Health Care, or as an aid to personal relaxation or stress reduction. An individual’s attendance at an Event should not under any circumstances be used as a justification to alter or replace the service, treatment, medication or advice provided by a Health Care professional. Events are only appropriate for those who are willing to take full responsibility for their own (and in the case of parents/guardians, their child’s) inner wellbeing, be it emotionally, intellectually and or spiritually. If you are not able to take full responsibility in this regard, you are not permitted to attend the Event. We cannot safely deal with or manage people in crisis. If you develop an acute condition during an event, your care is primarily your own responsibility and, where relevant, the responsibility of your next of kin and external professionals and services. In some situations we may provide Pastoral Care, however we have limited resources so you must not assume that you will be able to receive Pastoral Care at one of our Events. If you have certain conditions, or it appears that you are moving to such a condition, then we will refer you to your next of kin, external professionals such as a GP, or other services, and we may require you to leave the Event. These conditions include, but are not limited to: A condition requiring help which would normally be provided by a qualified or trained person. An emotional or nervous condition that creates a significant disturbance for other Event attendees, particularly where alcohol or substance misuse is present, or where there is impulsivity. A condition which inflicts verbal abuse on others. A condition where there is a real risk of assault to others, physically or sexually. In the case of a medical or psychiatric emergency we will contact emergency services and your next of kin. You must ensure the next of kin details you provide us are accurate.
