Show 6. ‘Why we must be able to trust universities to protect our children’ with Lee Fryatt of The LEARN Network and Suicide Bereavement UK.
This broadcast coincided with the start of Freshers week at universities and features an interview with Lee Lee Fryatt, a former police inspector, whose 19 year old son, Daniel, died by suicide shortly after starting his first term at University in September 2018.
Lee talks about how he assumed that when Daniel was struggling with suicidal thoughts, that the university would contact his parents – they didn’t. Hear how Lee now works with other families, bereaved by suicide, to help ensure that all 200 universities in the UK implement a statutory duty of care to protect your children while they’re away from home and in their charge.
