Care leavers

Student Services staff provide support, advice and guidance to our students who are in care or through care services. We also work in partnership with other support services in Moray and beyond to help you access study.

We know that coming to college can be daunting as well as being an exciting opportunity. The Student Services staff realise that you will be feeling a bit anxious and nervous therefore they are here and ready to help you.

We also work in partnership with external support organisations and agencies to ensure that we can support you before coming to college, through college and after college.

So if you would like to find out more about how we can help you, please get in touch with Student Services on 01343 576354/576208/576265 or email student.services.moray@uhi.ac.uk.

Additional help and resources: Who Cares? Trust website.

The Who Cares? Trust is a voice and a champion for children and young people in the UK living in care. We believe that every child in care should receive the support, encouragement and opportunities they need to enjoy their life and to achieve.

This is an essential resource for looked-after young people and care leavers in Scotland thinking about taking a further education course.

Published in January 2015, it brings together in one place for the first time details of the support available to these young people at the 27 colleges in Scotland that offer further education.

Looked after young people and care leavers can use the handbook to easily compare what each college offers, and choose the college that offers the right support for their needs.
