At a time when we're at home for the majority of our time, it can be easy to feel isolated from our friends, families and colleagues that we aren't seeing as often.
However, there are different ways to stay in touch and prevent yourself from feeling lonely. This page has some ideas and advice that will help you to keep your social connections active despite self isolation.
For some additional information, please visit Communication and collaboration (Organisational Development)
Social Groups and Networking at Warwick
There are around 6,000 members of staff at Warwick, and you can get to know some of them by joining the various networks and groups that exist. Many of these networks operate virtually to some degree, meaning that you can still make connections during coronavirus.
Self help resources
In addition to the masterclasses, webinars and drop in sessions, you can also access self help resources which have been developed by Wellbeing Support Services and colleagues.
The following self help resources aim to help you manage your relationships and stay connected:
- Dealing with relationship breakdowns
- Emotional intelligence
- Managing conflict
- Supporting a friend
- Time Management
- Work Life balance
You can find the full list of self help resources here.
Resources from Warwick
In addition to joining staff networks, you can stay connected by following the University's various communications channels. Many of these channels aim to help staff connect with one another during this difficult time, rather than purely providing essential updates and information. Learn more about these on the 'Stay Informed' page.
Get involved in volunteering
University of Warwick is working closely with our regional neighbours and partners to respond to the coronavirus outbreak. All of our staff are working differently now and for some of us, this may present the opportunity to volunteer amongst our community.
A list of opportunities to volunteer in our region have been collated on this page. Take a look to see how you can get involved.
