Sussex Parent and Carer Staff Network

The Sussex Parent and Carer Network was set up in Summer 2020 by Hannah Mason-Bish and Tamsin Hinton-Smith in response to the pressures caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Aiming to support staff in balancing their caring responsibilities and professional roles, the network has a growing membership of over 80 staff.

Taking an inclusive approach, we welcome any staff, in any role who have some form of caring responsibility.

Our aims are to:

  • offer mutual support amongst staff with caring responsibility
  • engage with management about policy and practice affecting staff carers
  • hold termly meetings to discuss and share ideas of support.

If you would like to join the network or would like further information, email edi.unit@sussex.ac.uk.
