Students struggling financially during lockdown have been given emergency care packages.
More than 300 packages containing food and cleaning products and some have been delivered across Tayside, to students in isolation.
A group of volunteers from Dundee University Students’ Association (DUSA) and the university’s student services team have been putting the packs together, with products supplied by the campus Premier shop, which opened especially to help with the effort.
Students who reached out for support were given collection times for their emergency packs, if they were able to leave home, with more being delivered.
Lauren Macgregor, vice president of student welfare at DUSA, said: “ The students I've seen whilst delivering the packs have been so grateful and I think knowing that they're part of a university that cares so deeply really reminds us of our strong community.
“This is different to any other welfare campaign I’ve been involved in and it’s fantastic to see the direct benefit of all the hard work everyone has put in.
“Working in collaboration with student services has been absolutely essential in making sure every student that needs our help can be supported."
Support for students facing financial hardship or isolation will continue with more packages being put together in the coming weeks.
