The University of Salford is proud that for more than 10 years we have been at the forefront of supporting our care leaver students, working in partnership with local authorities and other organisations to provide great support.
We pride ourselves on being a friendly, accessible university. Some of our staff work nationally to make sure that care leavers have all the support they need in place to access and succeed in higher education. If you are deciding which university is right for you, we run many events, often in collaboration with other local universities and local authorities, to ensure you have all the right information to make the right choices, so get in contact and we can tell you what is happening.
We can also arrange a visit just for you to have a look around, meet other care leavers at uni and check out the support on offer.
Throughout your time with us we will keep in contact with you – you are always welcome to come and see the care leaver support team and speak to them confidentially about anything.
We offer flexible accommodation, for 52 weeks a year if needed, specialised counselling and wellbeing services, support for asylum seekers, careers and employability, disability and learning support, support for caring, homelessness – anything really!
We also encourage all our care leavers to work as a paid student ambassador at events for other care experienced young people, where you can share your knowledge and experience and help others to follow in your footsteps.
Whatever questions you may have, we are here to help, so just ask! Email as at [email protected]
