Campaign for change to university application forms for carers

A campaign has launched for a change to Welsh university applications forms to help give more support to carers.

The call comes for UCAS to change its forms so that universities can get information from applicants about whether they care for someone who has an illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction.

Carers Trust Wales is supporting the campaign and says it would have a 'seismic impact' on the understanding of caring responsibilities.

UCAS told ITV News it is working to add this option as part of a wider review.
