We are looking for students who will support unpaid carers within their university setting. This could be done by putting up posters and passing out leaflets to identify carers within the uni. You could organise a breakfast club or publicise our campaigns. Carers are people who look after family and friends who are ill, elderly or disabled. As a Student Carer Champion, you could bring carers together who are studying at your university so they don't feel isolated and lonely. You will have the knowledge and experience to support them and signpost to Carers Wales so they get the best advice possible. It is an opportunity to practice and develop personal organisation, communication and interpersonal skills, time management and creativity. It's an opportunity to better understand the needs of carers.
