Sheffield Hallam at Risk Pathway
Here at Hallam we have a Sheffield Hallam At Risk Pathway (SHARP) in place which enables us to offer a holistic support offer to students in exceptional circumstances. This includes students who are at risk to themselves and others, and who have complex support needs which cannot be managed through our standard student support model. More information about these processes and how we support students can be found here. We would encourage all students to familiarise themselves with these processes.
