The Unite Foundation is a charitable trust specialising in transforming the lives of young people by enabling access to higher education and raising aspirations. It was established in 2012 by Unite Students, the UK’s leading developer and manager of student accommodation, which remains the majority donor, supported by its business partners.
The aims are to:
- provide scholarships for young people from a care or estranged background; supporting them to access and succeed in university
- provide employment and work experience opportunities that help them fully realise their potential on graduating
- support research that addresses the education inequalities experienced by care leavers and estranged young people.
