Care to Go Higher

As a partnership of West Yorkshire higher education providers, we have a shared responsibility to help care leavers reach their potential through economic and educational progress. To address the challenges young people face when leaving the care system, we’ve introduced our pilot Care to Go Higher programme. Care professionals will be embedded in a higher education environment to garner first-hand perspectives and experiences, which they can share with those for whom they are providing care.
