Applying to university? Tick the box!

It’s Tick the Box week, and The Fostering Network are encouraging all young people in care who are applying to university to ‘tick the box’ on the UCAS form to let them know that you have spent time in care.

This can give you access to extra financial support, emotional support and access to university halls of residence. Each university has its own support package for care leavers – don’t miss out!
