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 2nd Wednesday afternoon from 3.30pm until 4.15pm. These meetings are held by Claire Finnan-Brown, Assistant HR Adviser (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Anna Mills, HR Adviser (email@example.com). Should you wish to join these meetings please contact either Claire or Anna and they will provide you with the diary invite for the dates the meetings are to be held along with the Zoom meeting details.
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.
