Our aim is simple; to provide a safe and secure home for care leavers and estranged young people for whom university may not have been an option because of their personal circumstances, and to give them a helping hand to grasp their potential and succeed in their chosen field.

To date, we have seen future doctors, scientists, lawyers, engineers, journalists, social workers and artists graduate through the Unite Foundation Scholarship scheme. We delight in the thought of the careers the scholarship has helped to launch, careers that may have not been realised without it. Unite Foundation scholars receive up to three years of free accommodation so that they can concentrate on their studies without having to worry about paying their rent and bills.

This year, we want to take the idea of providing a home one step further by giving each of our new scholars the easiest possible start in their new surroundings. Many students take the 'bank of Mum and Dad' for granted when they move out of home for the first time but what happens if you don't have that? We plan to provide each new scholarship recipient with the basics: A bedding pack, bath towel and essential kitchen equipment to get them started in their new home. We also want to help our scholars build vital support networks by running events in Foundation cities to introduce our scholars to each other and to the people who are there to support them.   

Friends and supporters of the charity have been hard at work running marathons and climbing mountains to help us raise the money but we need some extra help.

Help us give our scholars a fresh start this September in their new homes. Even a small amount can help make a huge difference to someone starting the next chapter of their life.  

Thank you for your support!
