Dear Keira,

Thanks for your reply, would it be possible to receive the spend for the Student Wellbeing Centre?

Hello Jamie,

Dear Keira,

Apologies for the confusion, I'm a little unsure on how the university allocates these funds. Ideally, I would also like the spend in relation to staff too, but I'm assuming this must be dealt with by a different department to the Student Wellbeing Centre?

Yours sincerely,
Jamie Dixon

Dear Jamie,

Yes you are correct our HR department provide a number of wellbeing services for staff and so there is no central budget for wellbeing for staff and students.

Our HR team had asked for clarification around what you would define as wellbeing to allow them to look at annual spend for the services.

Kind regards,
