Second findings report 'Pathways to University - The Journey Through Care'.  part of the ‘Battling the Odds: Pathways to University from Care’ project, funded by The Leverhulme Trust and the ESRC Impact Acceleration Account at the University of Sheffield

The population of care leavers included in this research were perceived to be educational high achievers, yet the overwhelming majority described difficult journeys through care.

The recommendations at the end of this report highlight potential gaps in services, and identify particular flash points that created stress, trauma and tension.

We call for action from Government and Policy Makers to accelerate support and promote achievement for those with care experience.
