If you are a care leaver, or are about to leave local authority care, you have the opportunity to attend pre-induction events to assist with the smooth transition into university life, such as meeting key Newman staff and familiarising yourself with the campus. Care leavers also have guaranteed access to year round accommodation as well as specialist student support. We provide this support to ensure care leavers or those in care can reach their academic potential.
Our Welfare Advisor, Tammy Oyekanmi, can act as an advocate on your behalf, put you in touch with our Transition Mentors or help you to access any relevant support. Tammy can be contacted via email on: T.Oyekanmi@staff.newman.ac.uk or by telephone on 0121 476 118 ext. 2418.
