Today, 30 November, is #CarersRightsDay and we’re proud to be supporting our Student Carers’ Rep Carol Hayward to ensure that all students who have unpaid caring responsibilities for a friend, partner or family member get the help and support they’re entitled to.
If you’re a student carer then there is lots of support and advice out there, from the University, from organisations like Carers UK, and from your Student Carers’ Rep Carol. If you would like to meet other student carers then you can join our online community here, or email Carol at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To mark #CarersRightsDay, we’re also launching a series of posters designed to raise awareness of student carers, their experiences, and the support available to them. If you would like any of the posters to display in your School or Service, please email Carol at the address above and we can post them out to you.
