Guide to Supporting Care Experienced Students

At the University of Chester, we understand that students who have experience of local authority care, or who are estranged from their families are statistically less likely to attend university. With this in mind, we are committed to doing what we can to encourage students to consider university as a viable option for them, as well as supporting them to succeed and fulfil their potential when they are with us. We have compiled this guide as a reference point for teachers, advisors and influencers to offer some key information about how you could support these students to consider university, and what assistance is available to them.
