Family and Carer Supports

family with young children Western Sydney University is committed to supporting students and staff who are parents or carers or about to become parents or carers. There is an understanding that juggling both family commitments and working or studying commitments can be challenging. Legislation underpins our policies and enterprise agreements which aim to provide entitlements to make these obligations a little easier where possible.

Family and carer supports also include information links for policy, fact sheets and other resources for new parents, new mothers, and carers of family members with disability, health concerns or ageing parents. Supporting our students and staff with family support entitlements contributes to improved outcomes in both the workplace and the home environment.
