D&G College Staff and Students Team Up to Beat COVID-19

Students and staff at Dumfries and Galloway College have joined together to support the fight against COVID-19.


A team of 40 volunteers has come forward to assist in the work that focuses on helping public services and vulnerable people in the South of Scotland.


The work that the team is involved in is in addition to their college responsibilities and involves supporting the NHS, Police Scotland, and other public services and organisations as they deal with the Coronavirus.


The staff and students have offered their skills across different areas including administration, telecoms, social care, sanitation, and graphics technology.


Four of the members of staff have come forward to volunteer as drivers to ensure the region keeps moving throughout the pandemic.


Dumfries and Galloway College has responded to the crisis by using technology and the skills of its staff and students to make a positive contribution and to ensure that learners continue to have access to their college.


Principal Joanna Campbell said:

“In these challenging times, I’m delighted to see our staff and students stepping forward to help their community.

“All of us at Dumfries and Galloway College take great pride in our place in the life of the South of Scotland we are committed to helping make sure we all make it through this crisis with the minimum of disruption.

“I would encourage anyone in our college community, who believes they are in a position to do so, to join our team so we can help beat the COVID-19.”
