Posted by rmt22 at Jan 22, 2019 03:42 PM |
We're committed to ensuring the University is a flexible and family friendly environment for all of our staff and students.

As part of this commitment, we have many ways to support staff who have caring responsibilities, whether this is looking after children or supporting elderly relatives from policies to guidance for managers.

We are now going even further, with the launch of a staff and student Carer and Parent Network on Thursday 14 March from 12noon-1pm in the Charles Wilson Building Second Floor LT Belvoir Park Lounge.

The network will provide a forum where staff and students who have any caring responsibilities can meet and offer support. It will host information workshops and social events, as well as welcoming guest speakers to present on a range of relevant topics.

At the launch we will be welcoming Lisa Hanley, who leads The Parent and Carer Network at The University of Southampton, and Professor Henrietta O’Connor, Head of the College of Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities.

We will be looking for your suggestions and requests for future events/speakers and/or resources you would like us to provide, to make suggestions or get in touch, just email us at We've also created a Parent and Carer Yammer Group where you can chat and offer support.
