You can help make sure no student with potential is held back by their circumstances

I care about: Everyone getting an education

Only one in six pupils who need free school meals go on to university (Source: UCAS). So many young people who have the potential and desire to succeed at university are held back by a web of circumstances, from finances and responsibilities at home, to lack of confidence and role models.

You can help make sure that everyone has the opportunity to learn, including:

  • Practical and financial support that enables young people who have had a tough start in life to become our future doctors, teachers, inventors and much more
  • Scholarships for young carers who need to take care of a loved one while studying
  • Support for students who are/have been in care
  • Mentoring and paid internships, which offer vital advice or work experience for students without networks or the resources to work for free
  • Hardship grants for students who face unexpected emergencies, from the cost-of-living crisis to finding their parents can no longer support them
