Why take the pledge

In October 2016 Stand Alone launched its new Pledge for higher education institutions.

The Stand Alone Pledge is a commitment by a university or college to develop their support for estranged students across the student lifecycle.

Geoff Layer, VC of Wolverhampton University, one of the first universities in England to champion the Pledge, spoke at our launch conference. Read his reasons for supporting our work on his UUK blog 'The Stand Alone Pledge: helping students without a family network'.
