Funding for Mental Health in Colleges AY21-22

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, West Highland College should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear West Highland College,

Under Freedom of Information Scotland, I wish to receive the following information within 20 working days:

1. Please provide details of the amount of additional funding allocated to you by Scottish Funding Council for Mental Health in Colleges for AY 21-22. For the avoidance of doubt, I am referring to the funding provided which was supplementary to the college’s core funds.
2. Please advise what proportion of these funds will be spent or is proposed to be spent on Support Staff/Lecturing Staff/Students. Please provide separate figures for each.
3. Please advise how the additional funds will be spent or are proposed to be spent on each separate group.
4. Please advise whether the recognised trade unions were consulted before submission of the document or on any subsequent decisions taken?

Yours faithfully,

John Gallacher
