We welcome all student parents and carers to this society, formed in November 2020, with an aim to bring the community of students with caring responsibilities (SCR) together. It is a safe and supportive space to discuss common concerns and share valuable information on matters that concern this community. We organize social gatherings, interesting events and useful webinars (check out the Events tag above) on topics such as student-life as a carer, parenting, childcare, financial and time management.
President/SU Officer for SCR: Louise Saukila
Treasurer: Sharon Vince
Vice President: Maryam Bandukda
Welfare Officer: Aswathikutty Gireesh
We organize virtual and in-person informal gatherings every month. Check out our Facebook group and this space for updates on upcoming events. In addition to organizing interesting events, we also work towards improving student-life at UCL as a carer, by campaigning for an inclusive policy and better childcare facilities. The society has become an active space of interaction through social media platform to bring up issues addressed by students in this difficult circumstances brought by Covid-19.
