​​​                                      ​​   Specific Learning Solutions for Specific Learning Differences​


Welcome to  Beacon Support.  We provide specialist support for disabled students studying on higher education  courses.  
We promise to put you first.  We understand the importance of listening to you.  We know that you need your support to be of a high standard, reliable and tailored to your needs. 

Our specialist team of study skills tutors, mentors, assistive technology trainers, note takers and practical support assistants  will ensure that your individual needs are catered for. 

This is not an empty promise.

At Beacon we will carefully listen to you so that we can fully understand your needs. We will match you with the most appropriate support staff. 

We will always offer you support face-to-face, in person, unless you need it delivered in a different way.

We understand that there will be times when you need to arrange an extra support session, or receive your support at a different day or time, or maybe outside normal working hours.  We will always do our best to make sure we provide you with support  when you need it.
The team at Beacon Support is experienced at working with students in higher education.  We are delighted to provide you with the type of support that will help you to successfully engage with your studies and the social side of university life. 

In addition to providing the support you have been recommended by your needs assessor, we also offer advice and support from our team of psychologists in areas relating to your neurodiverse profile, and employment and graduation guidance.

My course has been extremely demanding so far (surprisingly so!) and the support I have been accessing has ensured I can navigate my way successfully through the chaos of the course structure, and make sense of my assignments despite my tendency to overcomplicate and over-analyse them. I cannot recommend my Beacon Study Skills Tutor highly enough, and if I choose to progress to a Masters, I will be sure to request Beacon for my support needs again
