Wellbeing Spend at the University of Leeds

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear University of Leeds,

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, I’d like to make a request regarding information on wellbeing services.

I’d like to request information regarding:

- The total spend on staff and student wellbeing services (or the equivalent department) during the 2018/19 academic year.

- Are student mental health services funded by the total identified above? Y/N

- If not, could you please identify which departments are responsible for student mental health support?

I’d kindly request that the information is sent digitally, in a spreadsheet format; .csv or .xls file types would be ideal.

Yours faithfully,

Jamie Dixon

Dear Jamie

 

Further to your FOI request, please see below/attached.

equivalent department) during the 2018/19 academic year. See attached – .

Staffing we have:

£484,216

 

Non Staff Costs: Includes (Smoke free campus, OH budget, Staff Counselling
Budget, Healthy Week etc.)

£235,000

 

Total spend in 18/19

Approximately: £719,216.

 

-        Are student mental health services funded by the total identified
above? Y/N Yes, as outlined above

provides academic support to students with mental health difficulties,
however it is not ‘mental health support’.

 

I hope this is helpful in resolving your query. If you have any questions
about this email, however, please don't hesitate to contact me.

 

If you are unhappy with the service you have received in relation to your
request and wish to make a complaint or request a review of our decision,
you should write to or email directly Mr D Wardle, Deputy Secretary, The
University of Leeds, Leeds, LS2 9JT ([1][email address]). You
should do so within 40 working days of receiving the University’s response
to your request. Further information about how the University manages
Freedom of Information requests and about our complaints procedure is also
available on our website ([2]www.leeds.ac.uk).

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision.  Generally, the ICO cannot make a decision unless you have
exhausted the review/complaints procedure provided by the University.  The
Information Commissioner can be contacted at:  Information Commissioner’s
Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

Best wishes,

Alice
