Support for Shared Parental, Maternity, Paternity or Adoption Leave returners

12 Jul 2018

Staff Learning & Development and the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion team are offering parents returning from shared parental leave, maternity, paternity and adoption leave the opportunity to get together at a peer support group

Parental leave

Part of the University's commitment to Equality, Diversity and Wellbeing at Work, these informal sessions are un-facilitated and after an introduction by a member of the Staff Learning and Development Team, colleagues are left alone to:

  • Share experiences in a safe environment;
  • Hear about what has worked for others;
  • Offer peer support;
  • Discuss issues related to the balancing of work and caring responsibilities.

We provide tea and coffee and you are welcome to bring your own lunch.
