FOI: bereavement services

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Dumfries and Galloway College,

I am e-mailing to make a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

If you have any questions or need clarification to complete my request, I would be grateful if you could contact me prior to the deadline of 20 working days from receiving my request.

I’m looking for information regarding the bereavement services which are available in your university or college. Please could you answer the following:

+Do you offer special provisions for counselling services for students specific to bereavement? Y/N
+Do you offer any support or counselling services for students? Y/N
+Do you have an institution wide policy/guidance regarding caring for students following a bereavement? Y/N
+Do your policies or practices exclusively relate to support for students who have lost parents or does your support factor in other forms of bereavement, such as losing a sibling?
+Can you tell me what special provision you have for offering extensions and academic breaks in study after a bereavement?
+How much money did you allocate to counselling and support services for bereavement per year (Jan 2016-Jan 2019)?
+If you feel you would like to offer an opinion, would you say your institution feels you are offered enough from the Government in order to support students who have experienced bereavement while studying?

I understand that under the Act, I should be entitled to a response within 20 working days. I would be grateful if you could confirm via e-mail that you have received this request.

Regards,
Georgia Coan + Poppy Damon

Hi Poppy

Learners enrolled at Dumfries and Galloway College all have access to the Student Adviser service which provides Pastoral Support for any issue which a student may encounter during their time studying with us. The Student Advisers are not trained counsellors so if they believe they do not have the knowledge or skills to support a specific issue then we refer the student to one of the external agencies we work in partnership with. Extensions and academic breaks can be provided and are dealt with on an individual basis.

Regards

Stuart Clark
Student Support Team Leader
