“Are you considering a career in social work? The University of Chester are committed to encouraging care experienced students to consider university as a viable option and will support young adults to succeed and fulfil their potential. We can offer financial support (in the form of a bursary), fee waiver, pastoral and academic guidance, and assistance with accommodation costs.
In addition to this, we have also created a carer support package for students who have unpaid caring responsibilities for a family member, who would not be able to cope without their support. Carers can access a University bursary, have priority access to the Financial Assistance Fund and will be linked to a member of staff for further support and guidance. This scheme would apply to current foster carers (or carers for people of any age) who are interested in studying social work alongside their caring responsibilities.
Please see the attached two leaflets (in bold above) and contact email@example.com for more information on either of these student support packages.”
