NNECL, together with four charities supporting care leavers / care experienced students, are seeking to find out the financial situation of these students currently studying without family in view of the summer months.
The situation with lockdown is changing what summer will look like for care experienced and estranged students. We are collecting evidence to share with the various national governments about your ability to earn money and support yourself until the next student finance loan arrives at the start of 20/21 academic year or after graduation.
If you’re a care-experienced or estranged student studying higher education at college or university, we’d be grateful if you could complete our survey. Please complete it only once.
For those of you that work with or support students from a care background, please share with your networks or pass on to any students that may be impacted by the current crisis.
