Realising the potential of Children in Care

Tick the Box

Posted on by Judy Molyneux

Tick the Box aims to encourage care experienced people to say that they have spent time in care on their UCAS application so that they can access the right support, as well as raising awareness and aspirations for people in care.

The support care experienced people can get will be different at every college and university, ranging from additional financial support to practical support to help care leavers settle in, find accommodation or manage finances. Some universities will even take care experience into account when making an offer. This support can make a huge difference for care experienced people.
