H.E. Handbook for Care Leavers

H.E. Handbook for Care Leavers

The H.E Handbook is a free downloadable guide for care leavers which sets out exactly what universities and colleges across England and Scotland offer care-experienced students.

Whether to go to university and choosing which one is right for you is a huge decision. It can be an even greater struggle for care leavers who face concerns about who will help them with the cost, what support they will get and where they will live during vacations. We've made these decisions a little less daunting by creating guide setting out exactly what universities and colleges across England and Scotland offer care-experienced students.

The guide contains information on over 140 universities, including:

  • outreach work 
  • bursaries and grants 
  • the welfare and accommodation support care leavers can expect
  • named contacts to get in touch with at each organisation. 
  • overview of student funding in England and Scotland
  • jargon buster
