In Partnership with the Government’s Children, Young People, Education and Skills Department, we have worked to help students, who study away from the Island, get their belongings back from student accommodation.
Many students left their possessions behind in the UK when they were forced to leave their accommodation abruptly due to the Covid-19 pandemic. CYPES and Jersey Post have been in discussion to resolve the issue and have come up with the following solutions:
The Assistant Minister for Education, Deputy Jeremy Maçon, said: “It must be very concerning for students who were forced to leave their possessions behind when they returned to Jersey following the outbreak of Covid-19. I’m delighted that Jersey Post has worked with its partners on a range of options to help students get their belongings home.”
Tim Brown, Chief Executive Officer of Jersey Post Group, added: “We understand the frustration of students not being able to get their belongings back to the Island easily. With many students forced to leave their belongings behind when returning home earlier in the year, we are pleased that, through our extended network partners Parcel Monkey and Fraser Freight, we are able to offer delivery options at affordable discounted rates throughout June.”
