Carers Trust provides the following definition of carers or students with caring responsibilities: 'a carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a family member or friend who, due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction, cannot cope without their support.'
Abertay acknowledge that many students face the challenge of being responsible for supporting and providing care for a family member or friend. Student Services want all students to be aware of the support and guidance available throughout the student journey from admissions to graduation and beyond for students with caring responsibilities.
