National Carers Week 12-18th June

The theme for this year's National Carers Week is 'Building Carer Friendly Communities'. At Lancaster University we understand that staff with caring commitments have increased demands placed upon them, and we aim to provide a supportive environment, inclusive of the needs of carers.  ‌


Lancaster University recognises the demands that can be made on staff who have caring responsibilities for elderly/disabled dependents. We have therefore recently updated our information on how departments and managers can support staff who have caring responsibilities.
