Richmond upon Thames College (RuTC) recently won one of four £500 donations from eSafe for the college’s hardship fund, presented in the form of shopping vouchers which will support vulnerable students.
The draw was held during the NAMSS Annual Conference on Monday 11 March and presented at the Gala Dinner that evening by Mark Donkersley, Managing Director of eSafe.
eSafe’s goal is to enhance children’s and young people’s welfare and wellbeing and to protect them. Their TripleLock protection system combines ‘advanced intelligent detection technology, specialist human behaviour analysis and dynamic threat libraries to identify threats that others can’t.’
Sharon Cousins, Assistant Principal Student Experience at RuTC, says: “Everyone at the conference was invited to enter the prize draw and as safeguarding vulnerable students is something I am passionate about I wanted to take part. I was delighted to be one of the winners and we will be using the vouchers to support students who find themselves financially vulnerable and in need of food or hygiene emergency packs.”
