Students with Caring Responsibilities

Hi Guys, Christian here from the SU.

I’d just like to thank everybody who has been involved with the work we are doing with the university, exploring the possibilities of establishing a policy to support Students with Caring Responsibilities.

We have had a fantastic response from carers to our survey (https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/swcr) and had some great input to our coffee morning last Friday. The feedback we have had will go a long way in helping us to understand the barriers you face in education and the support we can put in place to help you during your studies.

Our next step is to sit down as a group, look over our feedback and discuss what should and should not make up the policy. To do this we are looking for up to 4 students to be involved in the discussion. If you are already being well supported or have an opinion on what else could be done then we need YOU and YOUR expertise!!

The working group will look to take place at the beginning of January 2014. If you would like to be involved then please get in touch via email. You can contact me directly on suvphealth@edgehill.ac.uk.

It’s great to see so many active students this year! We can really make a difference with this!!
