Student carers

Email: | Call: 01245 68 6700

A carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support. (Carers Trust)

Caring responsibilities may include: personal care, finance and correspondence help, physical help, emotional care and practical care.

At Anglia Ruskin University, we are committed to ensuring that you are fully supported throughout your studies and we understand that your caring role means that life can be complicated. It may be that you arrived at university knowing that you would be caring for somebody or you may have unexpectedly become a carer whilst you were a student.

Time for yourself

It is important that you look after your own wellbeing as well as being a carer. This does not mean that you should abandon your caring role, but having a break from your responsibilities and having some time for yourself can be beneficial to yourself and the person that you care for. This can also help you to succeed in your studies. Please use the following links to find out how we can support you:
