The Carers' Network is a safe, confidential space for carers to:

  • meet and connect with other members at online Café meetings
  • discover what support is available at the university for carers. We hope the network will further influence the future support for carers' initiatives at the University
  • share and discuss the challenges you face.

Whether you are caring for an adult or a child with additional needs, on a permanent or temporary basis, you're welcome to join the network and attend our Café meetings. Our next meeting is on Thursday 23 November at 3.30pm, which is Carers' Rights Day.

The NHS recognises that it’s likely that every one of us will have caring responsibilities at some time in our lives with the challenges faced by carers taking many forms. Many carers juggle their caring responsibilities with work, study and other family commitments.
