支持 for Care Experienced Students

支持 for Care Experienced Students

We’re committed to supporting students who have experience of being in care. You’ll receive ongoing support whilst studying at 太阳2首页, and we can provide advice and guidance before you apply on all topics relating to higher education.

Who are Care Experienced Students?

太阳2首页大学, we deem a care experienced young person as someone who has spent any time in care during their life. This could include any of the following experiences:

  • 和寄养家庭一起生活
  • Living in a residential children's home
  • Being looked after at home under a supervision order
  • Living with friends or relatives in kinship care – either through a formal arrangement (e.g. a Special Guardianship order) or an informal arrangement without local authority support

If any of the above criteria apply to you, you can find details of how we can support you below. If you are unsure if you meet the criteria, please get in touch with our Care Experienced Student 联系 - 指甲花Javid (指甲花.javid@datacentrerealty.com).
