"£750 can enable a care-leaver or 16-19 year old to stay in education"

In the UK, many young people face significant financial barriers to accessing and remaining in further education. Young people leaving care for instance, are one of the most under-represented groups in further education. Statistically it is known that care leavers are more likely to have poor GCSE results, literacy problems and be in the judicial system than any other group of young people. Encouraging them to stay in education and training is a proven method of addressing these negative social indicators. The LRT has helped many of these young people through targeted support provided at the right time.

"£1,000 can fund higher and further education for a learner who may otherwise be prevented from studying"

Some learners, for a variety of reasons, are not eligible for student finance from the government. The LRT bursaries give learners the opportunity to continue their studies when they might otherwise be prevented from doing so due to financial hardship. The LRT has awarded bursaries to learners in higher and further education to help with tuition fees, accommodation, travel & study. 

"£750 provides five students with suitable clothing for job interviews and support with travel costs until they receive their first wage"
