Research request on behalf of Anglia Ruskin


Dear Colleagues and Friends

I hope you are well. I am conducting a survey of carers in academia and I wonder if you could help disseminate it within the AUCSO networks. To be eligible, you need to be employed by a UK-based university and to be a carer (broadly understood, including as a parent, for a friend, a relative etc.). Here’s the link:

We have received ethical approval for this project and are happy to address any question.

Thank you in advance for any support.

Warm wishes
