Part of the society is the informal peer support network that becomes created; we aren’t a counselling or advice service but we are all trying to balance life inside and outside of university. Sometimes having someone to chat with is helpful, likewise is having someone to not talk about university workload or work/life balance with is also helpful.
One of the society's aims is to arrange a few social events throughout the semesters which will give you the opportunity to meet other parents and carers. These socials may vary from an afternoon in the park, a coffee morning or a half term trip to the cinema. We will also encourage you to plan to arrange your own social events so hopefully everyone has something they can be involved in. Getting something out of this society depends on what we all put in.
We have strong links with the Students Union so we can voice any concerns you may have on your behalf.
If you have any questions feel free to contact us.
