Go Higher West Yorkshire have put this information together to help young carers understand the support that is on offer at our Partner Higher Education Institutions, and regionally.
This support ranges from financial to well-being and we hope you find the links and contact details useful.
If you feel comfortable doing so, it can be a good idea to notify University or College about your caring experience or commitments when applying. This gives them the chance to work with and understand you. It should also enable College or University to provide the best support they have available, to help you succeed and enjoy your time in Higher Education.
GHWY have created a fun HE myth busting game with content specifically relevant to young carers. If you are a practitioner in this field please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy.
Below you will see the support available from West Yorkshire Colleges and Universities, as well as additional helpful websites.
