07 Apr Cambridge University life for Care Leavers and Estranged students
Dozens of Cambridge University undergraduates come from care backgrounds and/or are estranged from their families, like Lily-Rose and Connall. Both met through the Realise Project, which aims to encourage more young people from similar backgrounds to go to University.
They say the following schemes were incredibly useful in allowing them to focus on their studies:
