We're working on launching a campaign which will begin in March 2010. If you'd like to know more or get involved why not drop us a line? We're also organising training and services to improve the quality of the educational experience for student parents and carers.

Please don't hesitate to ask for a free copy, or list, of publications, posters or information on other services.
