Dear Mr Stephens,


This is in reply to your enquiry received by the College on June 20th and
made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA). I can confirm that
the College does hold some information related to your request. The
information as held by the College is:


Support to all King's students includes their Tutor, our Welfare Officer,
the College nurse, a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, a Mental Health
Advisor and other resources such as hardship funding. For further details
see [1]the Student Support pages and financial support information spread
through the graduate and undergraduate [2]Study at King's pages of our
website. We also have a gender affirmation fund which is overseen by the
undergraduate and graduate student unions which offers financial support
towards things like binders, and where gender affirmation intersects with
mental health we provide tailored mental health support.


If you have further questions please ask me in the first instance. I
attach a leaflet outlining the College's FOI Act policies and procedures.
If, after following those procedures you are still not satisfied with the
way in which your request has been dealt with you may apply directly to
the Information Commissioner for a decision. Generally, the Commissioner
will not entertain your complaint unless you have exhausted any relevant
internal review procedures.
