To offer support to students on a night-out who are perhaps ‘worse-for-wear’ and in need of someone to make sure they are safe.



 



By being a presence on campus on an Asylum club night, University Angels can help the existing teams at Asylum and respond to students who are in need of additional support on account of intoxication. University Angels can help by speaking with students, keeping them safe as far as possible and also, where necessary, escorting them to a designated “Safe Space”.



 



A University Angel can provide a friendly face to someone who perhaps has been turned away from Asylum because they are too drunk to stay. The Angels are then able to stay with the student and keep them safe until they are able to make their way home.



 



The role may include escorting the student to a bus stop and waiting with them or arranging alternative transport for the student to get home.



 



Angels will:



 




  • Walk the campus in hi-vis jackets, ready to help vulnerable students

  • Provide information and telephone numbers for assistance

  • Listen and talk to students, and offer support where needed

  • Help ensure that your fellow students have the best and safest night out

We know it’s important that young people have access to information about cancer. Seven out of ten 12-19 year olds in the UK know someone who has, or has had cancer. The same number says they wouldn’t know what to say to a friend with cancer.



 



By giving them information they want and need, we can equip them with facts to make informed lifestyle choices and help shed taboos about cancer. We can also ensure they are able to cope when cancer affects them – whether they are diagnosed themselves, or if a friend or family member gets cancer.



 



We need your help to raise more income and reach more people so that we can provide Macmillan’s vital services to everyone who needs us.



 



 



- putting up posters and leaflets promoting our largest national fundraising event



- leading on getting a group of students together to organise your own coffee morning within your place of education



- distributing Macmillan collection tins where possible



- organising your own fundraising events throughout the year



- raising awareness of Macmillan and growing support for our work by talking about what cancer is and how Macmillan can help in your assemblies, student council meetings or within your student union meetings



- putting posters and leaflets up in your building to promote keeping healthy



- asking teachers, lecturers and students to become campaigners by having a campaign sign up day.



 



The experience and skills you can obtain by taking on this role:



•           meeting and working with new people



•           learning new skills which would benefit future applications to further education, volunteering roles or employment whilst having fun



•           a reference and invaluable experience for your CV



•           gaining experience of event planning, fundraising and of the charity sector in general



•           knowing your support is helping the 2.5 million people in the UK who are currently living with cancer.
