29 October 201326 November 201330 October 20131) What kind of financial support do you offer Care Leavers attending your university?
2) Is this financial support solely for Care Leavers or does it include any other groups of students? If so who?
3) Are there restrictions around the funding offered solely to Care Holders, i.e. Do they need to be under a certain age, should they have spent a certain amount of time in care before being able to receive this financial support?
4) Do you offer free or reduced accommodation costs to Care Leavers attending your university?
Care Leavers are considered in the same way as our other students to see if they are eligible for one of our Bursaries.
They also have the same opportunity as our other students to apply to our Access to Learning Fund (ALF) for additional financial assistance.

The only additional funding they can get as Care Leavers, is that if they apply to ALF for funding we will pay for their accommodation costs for the 3 main holiday periods (Easter, Christmas and the main summer break).

We do not give them reduced accommodation costs, but do waive the �250 pre-payment normally required to reserve the accommodation and we do guarantee their accommodation for the full length of their course (including the holidays).

There are no restrictions on the Care Leaver�s age or the length of time they have spent in care.
The same considerations as outline above are also given to students who are leaving a Foyer.
