Carers Staff Network

The University recognises the power of Staff Networks, these groups provide an opportunity for staff to connect, socialise, support one another, and discuss issues of relevance to their communities.

Staff Networks are run by and for the members, with administrative support from the ED&I team. We aim for each Staff Network to be led by a Chair, the key intention behind this role being to embed ownership of the Network within the membership and take a lead on the development of the Network.

The Chair of the Carers Staff Network is Naomi Mouland, you can contact Naomi on N dot Mouland at warwick dot ac dot uk.

Get Involved

Caring for somebody can be an extremely demanding and tiring responsibility, sometimes talking to someone in a similar situation might help. The Network will provide a safe environment for you to meet with others and an opportunity to discuss issues that you may be facing or just take some 'time out' from your responsibilities.
