With Hannah Bayfield & Lorna Stabler

Care experienced people may face numerous transitions throughout their lives, many of them relating to education. Whether it’s moving schools due to moving placements, transitioning to post-16 education, or making the jump to university, every transition has its own challenges – and opportunities. Here, CASCADE’s Hannah Bayfield (who researches care experienced young people’s experiences of higher education) and Lorna Stabler (who has lived experience of being a care experienced student as well as being a fellow CASCADE researcher) discuss Lorna’s own journey, sources of support and tips for transitions into HE.
