Dear Georgia Coan + Poppy Damon

 

Please find response to your Freedom of Information request:

 

Do you offer special provisions for counselling services for students
specific to bereavement? No

The counselling service works with students with a wide range of concerns
which can include bereavement
We do work with students around bereavement but some students need more
sessions than we can offer, at this point we would refer the student to a
specialist service such as; Cruse.
+Do you offer any support or counselling services for students? Yes, the
College provides a counselling service for students
+Do you have an institution wide policy/guidance regarding caring for
students following a bereavement? No
+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? No
+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?

 

Kind Regards
