stand alone

West College Scotland have proudly signed the ‘Stand Alone Pledge’ to help support students who are estranged from their family.

Who is classed as an estranged student?

A student under the age of 25 who no longer has the support of their family due to a breakdown in their relationship which has led to ceased contact. This might mean biological or adoptive parents or wider family members who have been responsible for supporting a student in the past. Estranged students have no experience of being in care and do not have a corporate parent responsible for them.
