Dear Information Office,

When referring to Student and Staff Wellbeing, I mean to encompass as many departments as possible that involve supporting both students and staff in a day to day basis.

This could easily include mental health support programs, wellness programs, the cost of staff that specialise in wellbeing support. I would appreciate as close to a total that includes overheads and direct costs.

I would ask however that it’s broken down or specifies which services are included in that total.

Yours sincerely,

Russ Hunter
