Care leavers

Supporting the journey of students leaving care or care experienced.

Student Services - Two female students sat on a bed with laptops .

If you are a care leaver or care experienced student at the University, we have a dedicated Wellbeing Advisor, Rebekah Cavill, who can help co-ordinate support for you with internal and external services, including social services.

We will try to make your transition to University as easy as possible and give advice on pre-application and guidance for offer holders. We can also offer support with accommodation all year round or support finding somewhere else for the whole year.

You can speak to Rebekah about any questions or queries you have about life at Lincoln, academic study and your general wellbeing.

The wellbeing team have been working towards the new Quality Mark set by NNECL (National Network for the Education of Care Leavers) by participating in a pilot study, you can find out more on their website below.

Please email studentwellbeing@lincoln.ac.uk for more information.
