Carers Trust Wales are please to launch the new report “Supporting Carers of People Living with Dementia”. This report has been developed as part of our project to increase the identification and support of older carers, in partnership with Age Cymru and funded by Welsh Government.
The research illuminates the lived experiences of student carers across Scotland’s colleges and universities, including the perspectives of those supporting them. Through an investigation of the challenges student carers face, and the barriers to accessing support, the research makes recommendations and suggestions to improve the studying experience for carers.
