Who are Student Carers?

 A student carer is any student 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.

What support currently exists?

The University of Strathclyde currently offer a number of support options for student carers. To learn more, click here.

How can I make my voice heard?

We at the Union have created a short survey to better understand the experience, challenges and barriers faced by student carers at Strathclyde - we would really appreciate your response and feedback on this.

We are hoping to use this information to create a better University experience for all student carers, and create solutions based on your input that work to help you!

  • The survey takes less than 10 minutes
