Our Carer Friendly Commitment

We commit to ensuring that all First Campus staff are aware of Young Carers and Young Adult Carers and the issues they face, in particular the impact that caring responsibilities can have on their education. We commit to providing inspirational learning opportunities that aim to help tackle barriers and challenges in their pursuit of access to and success in Higher Education. We commit to ensuring that carers are valued, listened to, given a voice and supported within our organisation.
