Student Voice awards 2020

As part of the annual Estranged Students Solidarity Week 2020 Stand Alone wanted to recognise the dedication of estranged students to and their support with the charity's higher education work. Without the student voice Stand Alone could not have achieved what it did to change higher education for the better for estranged students between 2016 and 2024.

The Student Voice awards 2022 went to:

Amie Waterman, Durham University

Bethan Wallace, University of Cambridge

Blair Anderson, University of Glasgow

Brogen Harrison, Salford University

Meegan Worcester, University of Leeds

Sam Macrae, University of Glasgow
