The Who Cares? Trust is a voice for children in care. Everything we do is designed to improve the day to day experience of children and young people in care - and their future lives.
What's new in care
Work is underway at The Who Cares? Trust on a groundbreaking new website that aims to increase the number of young people from care who enter higher education and the number of those who complete their course.
Set to launch in autumn 2015, the new website, called Propel, is aimed at young people in and from care aged 14-25 across the UK. It will provide, in one place and in an engaging and accessible format, all the information about each educational institution’s provision for care leavers so that young people can make an informed choice about the right course at the right university or college for them.

For young people who are in or have left care, further education can offer a crucial route to improving their life outcomes. Now a new publication available free online from The Who Cares? Trust, The College Handbook for Looked After Young People and Care Leavers (A Guide to the Support Available in Further Education in Scotland), will help to raise the aspirations and attainment of young people from a care background and help them onto a pathway to achieving their goals.
