New in care
The Who Cares? Trust is delighted to announce the launch of Propel, a new website to help inspire more care-experienced young people into higher education.
Propel provides full information about each educational institution’s provision for care leavers, helping young people make an informed choice about the right course at the right institution for them. It will also help ensure that they access all the support to which they are entitled, reducing the numbers of care leavers forced to drop out.
“Just because we come from a different background doesn’t mean that they should expect any less.” Young care leaver
Care leavers are around six times less likely than other young people to attend university or take part in a higher education course at college. Propel, a new online resource from The Who Cares? Trust, will encourage young people in care to aim high – and make the choice that is right for them.
