Welcome to the Universities Chaplaincy in Leeds

When to contact a chaplain?

Chaplains can support you or accompany you on occasions such as:

•you’re finding university life difficult and need someone to talk to;
•you need time to think;
•you need help in times of crisis;
• you need to make a decision and need support in doing so;
• you regret what has happened and need to move on;
• someone has died and you need support;
• you want to deepen your spiritual experience;
• you have personal struggles or relationship problems.

Chaplains have links with specialist sources of help within the universities in Leeds and can help you to access appropriate support.
