We're the Positive Peers - here for students, by students.

We are the Positive Peers, students trained to help our fellow students thrive by creating student-only events and spaces at King's. 

Whether you're looking to explore new ways to boost your wellbeing, meet new people or are finding things a bit tough at university, we have something for you!

Check out the different things we offer below and follow us on insta (@KCLSU.Peer.Support) to be the first to know about new events! 

121 Chat with the Positive Peers

University is full of ups and downs and sometimes when you're having a tough time, it can feel easier to speak to a fellow student.

You can book a chat with a Positive Peer easily here. 

We offer chats Mondays - Thursdays with a mix of on campus and online optitons. If you fancy a chat in-person with us, we'll treat you to a free hot drink from The Shack or The Shed. 

We are students, just like you, who are trained to listen. We're not professionals so can't give you advice but we can signpost you to services that might be helpful for you. 

These conversations are confidential, unless the Positive Peers are worried about your safety and/or the safety of others - then it is their responsibility to inform their manager of their concerns

Monthly Socials

Join us for a monthly social with a new activity each time. Come along and meet new people with no obligation of signing up to any of the other Positive Peers services. 

We want to create casual student-only spaces where people can come together, try a new activity and make some friends. These socials are open to all King's students and are all alcohol-free!

Positive Minds: Cozy Crafts

If you're feeling a bit low and finding university difficult, you can attend our peer support group Positive Minds.

You don't need to bring anything but yourselves, we'll provide all craft materials.

If you want to find out a bit more or see if this is the right thing for you, drop us an email at [email protected] or message us on instagram @KCLSU.Peer.Support


If you're interested in finding some new self-care tools to boost your wellbeing, check out our peer support Thrive workshops. 

Our Thrive workshops explore what good wellbeing and self-care look like for you. You’ll be given tools, questions and space to think about how you can include activities into your everyday life so that you can thrive, no matter what life throws at you. 

Our workshops can be tailored to suit the audience so whether you're a student booking in a session for your society or a staff member booking for your module, we can help! 

Available Workshops:

  • What is Wellbeing to Me?
  • Self-Care & Time Management
  • Stress & Set Backs

To book, please email [email protected] or message us on instagram @KCLSU.Peer.Support.

Who are the Positive Peers?

We are King's students who want to improve the personal and collective wellbeing of other King’s College London students! We do this by giving evidence-based information, sharing experiences, supporting our peers and connecting each other with helpful resources. Mostly, though, we just want to create a happier, healthier community for students at King’s!

What sort of training and supervision do we have?

  • We are volunteers who are trained to listen effectively, communicate sensitively, maintain confidentiality, respect boundaries and recognise when/how to encourage referral to professional support services.
  • We receive constant support and supervision through KCLSU.
  • We each sign a volunteer agreement
