Students are trained to help others in need

December 21, 2000

St Andrews University has launched a venture to arm a team of students with the skills to help others in need.

The SupNet (support network) involves 25 students of all ages and backgrounds who are trained in basic welfare and counselling skills and can be called on by staff to befriend students who need help.

SupNetters are recruited in their first year, trained in their second year and involved in appropriate projects in their second, third and fourth year.

Recent graduate Steve Yorkstone will be responsible for recruiting, training and supervising the team.
