  1. University support for care leavers Natasha Finlayson, Chief Executive The Who Cares? Trust 4th May 2012

  2. Open Doors, Open Minds • The Who Cares? Trust was funded by Cloth Workers Foundation to produce a guide to FE and HE for looked-after children and care leavers and a research report into the barriers they face. • We conducted survey of young people and professionals which suggested that many of them didn’t have enough information about universities • Part of the research included an analysis of all the Access Agreements for English universities

  3. The H.E. Handbook • So The Who Cares? Trust compiled details of the support which English universities offer to care leavers • We have funding for this for two more years • Available free online – www.thewhocarestrust.org.uk/hehandbook • We analysed the responses to compare the offer across different universities

  7. Making it better – recommendations for change • Better information for care leavers and professionals. • OFFA publishes clear information on care leavers and the support which may be appropriate in guidance for universities on Access Agreements for 2013/14. • Tracking data better so we can see the impact of the work institutions and councils are doing to promote access to education for care leavers. • Greater collaboration and sharing of best practice
