Parenting Scheme

A scheme in which you are assigned two “parents” to help you to integrate into Pride.

Joining a society or going to a social where you don’t know anyone yet can be a scary experience. The Parenting Scheme was created to help new members get involved, by assigning them two existing Pride members as ‘parents’. Your parents are there to offer you advice and assistance, meet up with you separately if you’re unsure about attending larger socials (or just want to converse by email), and attend some events with you so that you’ll always have a friendly face to show you around and introduce you to others. Becoming part of the Pride family tree is a great first step to making the most of your time in the society!

If you’d like to have Pride parents for the next academic year, please fill out the confidential "child" sign-up form and we’ll get back to you nearer the start of term.
