Campaign for UCAS tick-box for carers

Monday 23rd May 2016

A young adult carer is campaigning for a small change to the UCAS form that would make a huge difference for young adult carers and student carers.

Carol Hayward is one of many young adults who know what it is like to be a carer as well as a student. 

She is campaigning to get UCAS forms changed so that universities can get information from applicants about whether they care, unpaid, for someone who has an illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction. 

This change would mean that universities can give carers extra information when they apply to university and when they start their course.
