The ‘Estranged Students’ project aims to understand the challenges faced by estranged students. Funded by the Carnegie Trust and the Society for Research into Higher Education (SRHE), work is already informing policy, to ensure these students feel as ‘at home’ and connected as their classmates. Estranged students are now being recognized as a new category of ‘widening participation’, in admissions policies, and in UCAS entry forms. This is just one important way forward, and urge more action on targeting isolation, stigma and a lack of resources. Being careful not to assume all students have families may make estranged students feel more seen and supported. The postcard messages presented in this booklet were produced in our various workshops, conferences and seminars and are intended as training, support and information resources, images designed by Samia Singh.
