The Student Wellbeing Service provides support for enrolled Swansea University students experiencing distress arising from psychological, emotional; or mental health issues. We work alongside a range of partners including the NHS, charities and local support services and agencies to provide services and support for students.

The Wellbeing Service is part of the Inclusive Student Support Services (ISSS) Group, which is part of Student Services within Swansea University. Swansea University is responsible for the collection and processing of personal data including data defined as sensitive. As such, Swansea University is the data controller and is committed to protecting the rights of individuals in line with the UK Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) and the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)(2018). Swansea University has a Data Protection Officer who can be contacted through email on: dataprotection@swansea.ac.uk.

We take the collection, storage and use of personal data very seriously. In this document, you will find an explanation of why the Wellbeing Service collects individual data, how we process it and the steps we take to ensure data security at all stages.
