Social Inclusion Staff Award 2022 - Easter Residential School for Autistic Students

Congratulations to Damien Homer (Faculty of Arts Widening Participation Coordinator) and Claire Eddon (Faculty of Social Sciences Widening Participation Coordinator) for their work to create the Easter residential school.


Year 12 Autistic Easter Residential

This Arts Easter ResidentialLink opens in a new window took place from the 20th to 22nd April. It was a fantastic event with 17 students who identified as being autistic, spending three days and two nights experiencing university life, with many being away from home for the first time.

They took part in academic taster sessions, life skills workshops, shopping, cooking and a mini group project. Many of the young people spoke about their renewed confidence as they look to move from school to a more independent future.


Sense of Belonging Conference

On 27 April 2022, the University of Warwick hosted a joint event between the Widening Participation staff and Student Networks around the theme of 'Sense of Belonging'. The event was open to all staff and students at the university. There was a chance to highlight the support, opportunities and challenges faced by staff and students who study and work at the university. The event included interactive workshops, insight presentations and discussion forums.

Staff and students from across the Faculty of Arts were involved in presenting, and attending the event. Sessions included 'Young Carers’, 'Commuter Student', and also the 'Mature Student Experience'.
