Caring on Campus is a collaboration for those within the Higher Education sector involved in university life, irrespective of whether they are located on or off campus.

It’s aim is to offer resources and facilitation where professional and personal wellbeing can merge seamlessly, such that there is a genuine shared sense that everyone matters and belongs.

It drills to the core of what it means to connect, to listen and to communicate. Where both educator and learner can experience relationships and spaces where they can explore, establish and express their own individual values and purpose as a way of living and being.


It isn’t possible for a learner to have a good day when the educator is having a bad one.

It is an inside-out ripple effect.

Where teaching faculty transform and become agents of the change now needed to meet current day challenges in Academia, they then also confidently help steer learners on the journey towards finding their own meaningful contribution in life. Whether that be in research, back into teaching, or as changemakers in the wider world, it all manifests depending on the positive development of the whole person. This is Quality in Education.

There comes a point where we need to stop just pulling people out of the river.
We need to go upstream and find out why they’re falling in.

In so doing, it works within the framework of the University Mental Health Charter, now being strongly pushed by UK government, and also facilitates a university’s Impact Rankings on the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

Attainment of The University Mental Health Charter Award is now a strong directive from the UK government. The Charter is a whole sector approach that embraces EDIB and four key domains with the target outcome: Together for thriving futures

The THE University Rankings now include Impact & Sustainability as a third and equally important element to Teaching and Research and measured against the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Yet Quality Education (SDG4) currently scores lowest in UK participation vs worldwide.

It lies within Academia more than anywhere else to ‘join the dots’ between Sustainable good Mental Health and Wellbeing to lie at the core of Quality Education, in order to build Strong, Sustainable Communities that then go forward to Conquer Global Challenges for a Sustainable World Economy.
