Who are student carers?
We use the Carers Trust definition: A carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support.
Student Carers’ Network: for students who provide emotional or practical support to a relative, friend, or someone else who is unable to manage alone: https://www.facebook.com/groups/srcstudentcarers/
If you’d like to find out more about support for student carers at the University of Glasgow you can contact your VP Student Support, Hailie, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
