This is Carers’ Week for which I’m involved in several activities. I’m hosting an event as Chair of the Young Carers and Young Adult Carers All-Party-Parliamentary Group (APPG) for MPs to meet with young carers, and sign a pledge of support, and chairing the launch of our inquiry on the impact of caring responsibilities on the life chances of young people. I’m also joining an event organised by the Carers APPG to celebrate the work of carers across the UK.

Before all of that, this afternoon I’ll be speaking in a debate on student suicide, following a petition started by 25 bereaved families from across the country arguing for universities to have a statutory duty of care for higher education student – an issue I’ve been following closely over the last few months.

Tomorrow’s meeting of the Health and Social Care Select Committee continues our inquiry on Assisted Dying with the third evidence session, in which we’ll be hearing about practice in Canada and the Benelux countries, and on Wednesday we’ve a roundtable as part of our inquiry on the crisis in NHS dentistry.

Also this week, I’ll be chairing a meeting of the International Students APPG as we continue our inquiry into the Graduate Visa Route, meeting with the outgoing Students’ Union Officers at the University of Sheffield to discuss their Manifesto for Change, meeting with the local Probation Service on their response to their recent HMIP inspection, and joining Shadow Education Secretary Bridget Phillipson at a campaign event for Abtisam Mohamed – my successor as Labour candidate for Sheffield Central.
