The project draws upon a review of widening participation literature, a survey of higher education institutional arrangements and services, and participatory approaches employed with current and former university students who were care-experienced to explore university life.
Working together, researchers and participants analysed data, co-creating core narratives which reflected lived experiences.
This is a guide for HE institutions to help enhance the journeys of care experienced students.

This report explores the student experience in higher education alongside institutional arrangements, from the perspective of current and former care-experienced students, to encourage, or discourage, care-experienced students to follow their chosen study programme.
For students (and others) this work 'touches' in a couple of pages some of Pierre Bourdieu's work; which is particularly applicable to the sociology of education. For more on this the reader is directed to the following work by Diane Reay (and other work by the rest of the 'London Salon' academic group - see more on Google Scholar). See also this PhD thesis.

Note that grey literature publications should be referenced in the normal (Author, date) convention. Grey literature is any information that is not produced by commercial publishers. It includes research reports, working papers, conference proceedings, theses, preprints, white papers, and reports produced by government departments, academics, business and industry, although here at lookedafter.org.uk we collate academic research (social research that has a particular theoretical framework) separately from research that is survey-based (designed to identifying so-called 'social facts').
