A University Angel can provide a friendly face to someone who perhaps has been turned away from Asylum because they are too drunk to stay. The Angels are then able to stay with the student and keep them safe until they are able to make their way home.



 



The role may include escorting the student to a bus stop and waiting with them or arranging alternative transport for the student to get home.



 



Angels will:



 




  • Walk the campus in hi-vis jackets, ready to help vulnerable students
