The details of support available can change, so before you apply it's best to speak to the named contact to check exactly what they offer.

We are committed to supporting our learners who come from a care-experienced background, and we would be keen to meet you to have a chat about what would help you.

We offer financial support, personal support and guidance, and extra support for your studies through both our student support team and student union. 

We also hold the Buttle UK Quality Mark.

Please contact Lorna Jenkins on 01506 427610 or ljenkins@west-lothian.uk.ac for more information, or to have a chat about any of the above.
