Health and Wellbeing Directory

At College, we think it is important that you have the resources to access support within the community and across the wider region. Take a look at our directory below in more detail to find out where you can go to discuss your wellbeing, no matter how you are feeling.

The Health and Wellbeing Centre is always open too if you need some support. You can visit them in the Old Mill Lane campus next door to Student Services or get in touch with the team on 01226 216 233 or hwbc@barnsley.ac.uk
