Volunteer as a Positive Peer

Help fellow students thrive

KCLSU Wellbeing Positive Peers

The Positive Peers are a team of students trained to help fellow students thrive through creating student-only spaces where they support and learn from each other.

The Positive Peers are a key part of KCLSU Wellbeing and contribute to our community's commitment to improve student mental health and wellbeing.

Applications are now open to join the Positive Peers.

This is a voluntary role for 3-5 hours per week.

If you are passionate about improving the health and wellbeing of the King's community, we want to hear from you! All training will be provided.
