Welfare support

Welcome to the Welfare Hub for the staff and Fellows of St Catharine’s.

The current public health emergency caused by Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) poses challenges to managing our welfare and wellbeing as individuals and as a community. It can feel difficult and even overwhelming when we are faced with an uncertain and evolving situation. As we digest the news from the College, the University, locally and nationally, it's important that we allow ourselves space to try and process what this means for us and how we can look after ourselves – physically, mentally and emotionally – going forward.

With this in mind, St Catharine’s is deeply committed to offering meaningful and effective support to all members of the College community. The Health and Welfare team is coordinating this support, incorporating many wonderful suggestions and initiatives from across the College.  Please note that while we have checked all links at the time of posting, the College is not responsible for the content of external websites.

We will be sharing more resources over the coming days and weeks. In the meantime please find below some sources of information and help which you may find useful.

If you’re finding it hard working from home or in self-isolation, or need a bit of support, please feel free to contact your line manager or Maxine Flynn, HR Manager via email at:
