I work in Widening Participation and Outreach at the University of Surrey, and have done for seven years. It was through this work I first engaged with Surrey Young Carers. Since then I have worked to raise awareness of young carers in schools and within the University. I am extremely passionate about the work I do, and the importance of carers having support and opportunities to access education. I feel very privileged to be able to support Action for Carers Surrey, and continue to champion the work of carer across Surrey.
