HUB for SUCCESS - Contact details 

For children, young people and families with care experience

We provide impartial, one-to-one support to help you get in, stay in, or return to education.

We know that having time and space for education often means getting other things sorted first: things like finances, housing, or childcare.

We value our learners’ voices, views and opinions and take these seriously

We have a learner advisory board, which guides and steers our work. If you would be interested in joining our board, contact us.

We can help you reach out to other services to find everything you need to support your studies.


For those supporting people with care experience

We develop partnerships between FE, HE, local authorities and the third sector. Together we strive to improve local practice.

We put The Promise at the heart of everything we do, and champion the expertise that comes with lived experience.

At the HUB we are committed to making change.

We can provide training inputs and are working on a programme of virtual events for practitioners to share expertise in 2021.
