LEAPS Updates

If you are care experienced, estranged or a young carer, currently in S5 or S6, and you attend a school with which LEAPS works (see schools here), you can sign-up to receive relevant updates from LEAPS to help you explore your higher education options. For example, we might contact you about financial support specifically available to students who identify as care experienced.

To sign-up to receive these updates, please complete this online form.

If you are younger than S5, we encourage you to get in touch with your school guidance team to find out how your school can support you.
