Connect@Bangor is a project which enables trained volunteers to befriend students who may face barriers when engaging with student activities or need some general support during their first few months at Bangor. Some students may feel more comfortable joining clubs and societies, going shopping, visit their GP, or going to the gym in the company of someone else. Connect volunteers are on hand to spend time with students who need some extra company in those first few weeks and months and the project recognises the importance of enabling students to take part in activities to establish networks and friendship circles during their time at Bangor.
You can find out more about the befriending service and put yourself forward for our support by completing our Registration Form. All correspondence is treated confidentially.
Our experienced Project Leaders will liaise with you to find out what you need and then match you up with a connect volunteer. The volunteer will then make arrangements with you to meet up so you can get to know one another and discuss what types of things you would like company for. It's then up to you and your buddy to start enjoying everything Bangor university has to offer to you!
