Looked After Children and Care Leavers

New City College welcomes students who are care experienced.

We want to support you to achieve highly, so please tell us if you are a looked after child (also known as child looked after) or care leaver.

We aim to help you succeed at college and to enhance your experience, development and progression opportunities. We work in partnership with Virtual Schools and Personal Advisers to achieve your goals.

You may also be eligible for financial support of up to £1200 per year and free college meals.

Please tell us if you are care experienced at enrolment so that we can support you from the very start. This also means we can give you all the information you need to apply for financial support.

If you become a looked after child during your course, please tell your tutor.

If you are a professional working with a care experienced young person, please get in touch via our LAC Co-ordinator Rajia Hussain: rajia.hussain@ncclondon.ac.uk
