As an incentive for you to complete the National Student Survey, the University of Stirling and Stirling Students’ Union created a donation target of £500 for Alzheimer’s Scotland, scaled to the response rate of the survey. If the survey hit the desired 70%+ response rate from final year students, the full donation would reach the charity, which was chosen by your Student Exec.
The National Student Survey is your opportunity to give important feedback which will shape the future of degrees, social spaces, assessment and more at the University.
Alzheimer Scotland provides a wide range of specialist services for people with dementia and their carers. They offer personalised support services, community activities, information and advice, at every stage of the dementia journey. They rely on donations to fund Dementia Nurses, the Dementia Research Centre, Dementia Advisors and a 24 hour, freephone Dementia Helpline.
The cheque was presented to Kerry MacPhee from Alzheimer’s Scotland by Tim Whalley, Dean of Student Affairs and Jess Morris, Sports Union President.
‘We are delighted to receive such a kind donation from the University of Stirling. This will be used locally to help support the expansion of our day care facility, providing more opportunities for people with dementia to live well in their communities. Many thanks to all the students who completed the survey.’ - Kerry MacPhee, Alzheimer's Scotland.
We want to say a huge thanks to everyone for completing the survey and getting us to the response rate needed to not only make the donation, but gather some great, useable feedback. The survey closed on Sunday 30th April 2017 and the results will be published in late August.
