Turning 25 for me is daunting. I have already joined a Masters programme with one of the main aims being still in education/training as I turned 21 so I kept getting support. Obviously this is not an ideal reason for joining a programme of education but for care leavers this is the reality. I know I’m not the only one who has done it to avoid losing the support!
