LISS DTP: Parent/Carer Students Group
Funded by the LISS-DTP, the Parent/Carer Group is a support hub for students and ECRs who are also parents/carers, whose multiple roles exacerbate time constraints and increase stress, health risks and isolation. We support members’ wellbeing and research career progress through monthly peer support Check-in Circles, ad hoc Sounding Board Sessions, where we discuss research-specific content, and workshops tailored to support the wellbeing and productivity of parents and carers. The group is open to any student parent/carer from partnering institutions: Imperial, King’s College London and Queen Mary University of London.
