Parents' and carers' forum

The Parents’ and Carers’ forum seeks to provide a supportive and informative network opportunity for those working and studying at Keele with parental and care responsibilities. We welcome

  • mothers, fathers, partners or expectant parents;
  • grandparents and others with childcare responsibilities; and
  • those with care responsibilities for another adult.

The aims of the network are to:

  1. Provide insight and feedback as to how the University might support the needs of employees and students with parental and caring responsibilities in line with our commitments to Equality & Diversity and to the Athena Swan Charter
  2. Develop a programme of activities that would be of interest and value to the network members
  3. Raise awareness of staff and student policy and information available to ensure resources and practices are accessed to support parents and carers working and studying at Keele
  4. Provide a safe and supportive networking opportunity for staff and students with parental and/or caring responsibilities to meet socially and informally across the University

The Parents’ & Carers’ forum is delighted to welcome new members. Existing staff can join via the Parent and Carer forum Microsoft Team. For any other queries please contact Hannah Barjat.
