Care- Experienced Bursaries

If you are aged between 16 and 26 and are under 26 on the first day of the course, you may be eligible to apply for a care-experienced bursary.

The term “care-experienced” refers to anyone who has experienced a certain form of care in their life (sometimes known as having been ‘looked after’). This care may have been provided in many different settings, such as:

• Formal kinship care – living with a relative who is not your mum or dad
• Looked after at home – with the help of social work
• Residential care – living in a residential unit or school
• Foster care – living with foster carers
• Secure care – living in a secure unit (examples include those provided by a Local Authority, a religious organisation or charity)
• Adoption.
