Supporting Student Carers at UWS
Carers Trust Scotland defines a carer as anyone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or relative who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support.
There are many commitments that students who are caring unpaid for a member of their family, friend who is ill, disabled or has mental health or addiction problems. UWS is currently working towards the Aim Higher Award for Student Carers though the Carers Trust Scotland.
Our named contacts for these students are Alison Hillis and Mary Young, you can contact them via email at WeCare@uws.ac.uk
