The Department for Education has published new Higher education principles setting out what universities in England should do to encourage and support young people leaving care.

Actions covered include: use outreach work to engage with looked after children at as young an age as possible; seek to provide priority access and continuous 365 days a year accommodation to care leavers; provide financial support; identify at least one designated member of staff to support care leavers; and encourage and facilitate support networks of care leavers within the institution.
