Religious and Spiritual Resources in the time of Covid-19

As Covid-19 continues to unfold, a lot of us are finding it challenging to adjust to this new way of living and of perhaps observing certain religious practices, with places of worship shut and various religious activities cancelled.

To help staff and students pray, reflect or continue to engage in spiritual activities during lockdown, we have pulled together a variety of digital resources accessible here.

Safety and domestic violence at home during Covid-19 restrictions

Working at home during the Covid-19 crisis can bring very different challenges depending on people's individual circumstances.
Lock downs and restrictions on movement can mean increased rates of violence when people find themselves in isolation with abusive members of their households.
To help staff and students who are in this situation, feel unsafe, or may be in contact with people in this situation information around available support and resources can be found here.
