Did you know that only 6% of Care Leavers are in higher education at the age of 19, compared to 38% of the general population?
The Who Cares? Trust are seeking to change this statistic. They've launched an exciting new website, called Propel, which aims to inspire more care-experienced young people across the UK to see that they could achieve amazing things in higher education.
It is aimed at young people in care who are thinking about their future, young care leavers and the professionals and carers supporting them.
Propel replaces the popular Higher Education Handbooks, shown on the left hand pane, produced annually by The Who Cares? Trust since 2012.
A searchable website, Propel provides full information about each educational institution’s provision for care leavers, as well as inspirational stories from care-experienced students.
