Your elected officer Mary Copsey, is working on her Carers Awareness Campaign which investigates the impact of parent and/or carer responsibilities on students’ wellbeing.
Being a student at university and juggling all the respobilities with studying and caring for someone with dementia can be challenging. We understand that at ARU Students’ Union and that’s why Elected Officer Mary Copsey has been running “Become a Dementia Friend” interactive sessions in both Cambridge and Chelmsford. These interactive sessions are student friendly and will help to develop your knowledge and understanding as well as provide you with another platform for accessing support.
The next Become a Dementia Friend event will be on the 25th April register your tickets here
If you are passionate about supporting others the ARU Students' Union Volunteer Centre has a ‘Make Your Mark Campaign’ in Chelmsford on Dementia Care where you can get involved and support your local community.
