Wrexham Glyndwr University has been successful in securing £414k funding from HEFCW to deliver an exciting new project called Nature-Based Social Prescribing to Improve Student Social Connectedness and Mental Well-being. This new project aims to build on our previous research and outcomes by
1) exploring how social prescribing can be used as a tool to enhance student mental wellbeing and address student connectedness through nature-based interventions, and
2) evaluating the green referral pathways and understanding how green assets on University campuses and within the local community can be further developed or improved to meet students' needs.
To successfully deliver these outcomes, the university wishes to appoint two roles to join the project team.
Working as a part of the student and campus life directorate, the post holders must have the experience, knowledge and skills to support the coordination of the various stages of the project, engage multiple stakeholders and partners and have the ability to report accurately against key outputs.
Applicants to be highly customer focussed with excellent interpersonal and communication skills. Confidence to be outwardly focussed and proactively engage with people is also a key requirement. Knowledge of Social Prescribing and/ or a background in mental health and wellbeing would be desirable but not essential. A passion for supporting students and an interest in ‘green health’ (exploring the relationship between green space and human health) would also be highly desirable. The ability to speak Welsh is desirable, however not essential.
