NUS LGBT+ Campaign has teamed up with Stand Alone to launch the Estranged Students Solidarity Campaign. Together we aim to eradicate the stigma surrounding estrangement and support estranged students through their studies. We want to get lots of institutions and students' unions on board with this campaign and there's so much that you can do on your campuses to support estranged students.
