CELCIS, the Centre for Excellence for Children’s Care and Protection based at the University of Strathclyde, has published the findings of Scotland’s first nation-wide survey of care experienced students in Scotland’s colleges and universities.

Carried out on behalf of the Scottish Funding Council (SFC), this research aimed to get a better understanding of the factors that can be a barrier to, or can enable, care experienced students going to, being at, and staying at college and university in Scotland.
