Peterborough College Receives Carer Friendly Tick Award

Peterborough College, part of Inspire Education Group, has seen its accreditation renewed by a panel of carers, and has once again met the standards of the Carer Friendly Tick Award – Education.

The award was presented by Caring Together, a leading charity that supports carers of all ages across Peterborough, Cambridgeshire and Norfolk by offering information, advice and professional homecare services, and by campaigning to spotlight the voices of carers. The prestigious accolade recognises the hard work of Peterborough College’s Student Engagement and Wellbeing Services staff in ensuring that carers of all ages are recognised and given the support they need. The panel were particularly impressed by the positive feedback from young adult carers about the support they receive, and the level of carer-related activities provided, such as student information stands. Alice Longden, Community Engagement Coordinator at Caring Together, said, “We want to congratulate Peterborough College on their continuous achievements and thank them for the hugely important work that they are doing which brings real benefits to young adult carers and their families.”

Laila Bentley, Assistant Principal Student Experience and Support, said, “We have always been committed to supporting young carers in their College experience to ensure that they can achieve their study programmes and have the best possible outcomes for the future. Our dedicated Student Engagement and Wellbeing Services staff are delighted to continue to receive this accreditation, reflecting the contributions of young carers to the College community”.
