Staff Parents and Carers Network
To support all categories of University staff, we launched our Staff Parents and Carers Network on 28 March 2019.
The purpose of the informal Network, supported by the University, is to support the working lives of staff who have these off-campus responsibilities by:
- Providing a confidential forum to share knowledge and experiences through networking
- Raising awareness of the needs of working parents and carers through events and initiatives
- Providing an informal point of information and points of contact
Any staff members who are expectant parents or have parenting responsibilities, be it as birth parents, through adoption or fostering or as step parents, or are caring for a dependent whether they are ill, elderly or disabled family members, friends or partners, or any combination of the above are welcome to attend network events.
To join the mailing list please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Further resources and information for parents and carers can be found on the following Equality, Diversity and Inclusion pages:
- Carers (including information on local childcare providers)
- Pregnancy, maternity and paternity
- Fathers Network Scotland
- Staff Relocation Information
Network Launch, Thursday 28 March 2019, 1.30 – 2.30 pm, Parliament Hall
Join us for this opportunity to meet other working parents and carers here at the University. This will be primarily a social meeting, but we will also be seeking suggestions and requests from attendees for future events/speakers and looking to network members to give guidance on the format and frequency of network meetings.
Tea, Coffee and cake will be provided. Children are welcome.
To help anticipate numbers for catering and minimise waste it would be appreciated if you could register your attendance via the University Events Page. You are also invited to bring along your own reusable coffee cup.
