Young Carers/Young Adult Carers

We believe that young carers and young adult carers have the right to participate in learning and College life. Some students provide care for a family member with a chronic illness, a disability, or a mental health condition (including substance misuse) connected with a need for care. The person receiving care is often a parent but can be a sibling, grandparent, partner, own child or other relative.

Carer Champions

As a student you can, in the first instance, talk to your personal tutor. Should you feel uncomfortable doing that, for any reason, the College's designated Carer Champions listed below will be happy to be advocates for and work with you to positively influence your college experience.
