We are a support group for staff members who have, intend to have, or have had caring responsibilities.
The support group encompasses staff members who care for someone who is ill, old and/or frail, disabled or requiring significant assistance; care may be substantial or ad-hoc.
The support group meet meets every 8 weeks, providing the opportunity to network with other carers and share concerns and experiences. The group drives its own agenda, and carers therefore have the opportunity to suggest topics for discussion contribute to the topics discussed and suggest guest speakers.
With many of us working remotely, we have a drop in session via Zoom every Wednesday afternoon from 3.30pm until 5.00pm. For the Zoom meeting details please contact Claire Finnan-Brown firstname.lastname@example.org or Susan McGuire email@example.com.
Please note, this isn't the same as the carers meetings we have on campus, but is a means to keep the support network continuing under the current guidelines.
