The aims of this campaign are:

We hope that you will join us! All UCL staff members are welcome!

Daren Caruana is a professor of Physical Chemistry, a father to two boys and a carer for his wife and this is his personal & honest account:

"At this event, I will talk about my experiences of becoming a carer and single parent overnight, and the struggle to retain my career. My motivation for this event is to try and give something back. I have had support from UCL, but in hindsight I feel that just talking with people who are going through difficult times, no matter what they may be, made me realise that the challenges and emotions I was experiencing are not unique!
