This day is aimed at foster carers, social workers and personal assistants who work with looked after young people. Comparatively few young people in care go to university but many who do say that the biggest influence on them was the encouragement they received from foster carers and professional services. This day will provide you with the information you need to encourage your young person, regardless of who they are, to think about aspiring to go on into further or higher education.
