Emergency contacts

The DCSA Welfare Officers have provided a list of important emergency and general contacts for those in need of help. In the first instance, help is available within the College: during office hours you can contact the Deanery or if you prefer to talk to the DCSA Welfare Officers (Men's/Women's/LBGT+/International), they can be contacted via email.
 
Note, from a landline, numbers beginning 0800 & 0808 are free, and 0845(7) numbers are charged at national rates. Most phone lines are not open 24 hours.
