"This was super insightful and I learnt a lot. I also now have a whole new perspective on how to deal with situations that may arise." Students' union staff member
"I feel that I have up-skilled in certain areas such as how to make alcohol unit understanding relatable as well as learning more myself. This training will change the tone of the support I offer instead of feeling like I am lecturing students on what to avoid." Students' union staff member
