Sunderland University honoured for extending helping hand to students most in need

The University of Sunderland’s ‘We Care’ initiative is a lifeline to scores of students who do not have a traditional family network to fall back on in times of need.

For the past three years, the project has extended a helping hand to previously under-represented young people, aiming to improve their life prospects.

Now, the We Care programme has picked up the Widening Access Initiative (Retention and Progression) Award at this year’s NEON awards. The Awards celebrate the transformative power that higher education can have.
