Sheffield Hallam University has signed up to a scheme designed to help those who have gone through the care system.
The university is one of the first in the country to join the Care Leavers' Covenant, announced by the Government earlier this year.
Hallam offers tailored support to care leavers from application through to help finding jobs after they graduate.
Minister for vulnerable children and families Edward Timpson praised the university for its support for care leavers. “There is a moral obligation on all of us to play a role in supporting care leavers.
"We know that care leavers have problems accessing education, training and employment opportunities, so we’re working with colleges and universities to encourage them to sign-up to the covenant."
