Parents and carers

Parents and carers are valuable members of our University community. We aim to ensure that all staff are able to have a positive work-life balance and are supported to thrive in their careers and personal lives.

We have collected helpful resources to support you as a parent or carer while working at the University.

Join the Parents and Carers Staff Network

A support network for staff with parental and carer responsibilities. The network facilitates mutual support, and is a place to share experiences with other staff.

The network organises events and represents your views to the University via committees and forums.
