Empowering Children In Care
We believe that every child deserves the chance to fulfil their potential and achieve the best!
Whatever their background, whatever their path.
First Star announces partnership with Emmanuel College, Cambridge.
We are delighted to announce the ground breaking agreement between First Star Scholars and Emmanuel College that will see our newest programme start in 2024.
Bridging Success: Town and Gown Together
Volunteers – we are keen to engage with our local community and connect individuals and organisations equally keen to support our young scholars throughout their GCSE study years and post 16 school/college years (years 12-13). Our support extends beyond compulsory schooling into higher education, further training and employment. We are seeking volunteer mentors to support care experienced young people and ‘be there’ for scholars to help them reach their potential. Contact Rachel for further information.

Breaking The Care Ceiling
Commissioned by First Star Scholars UK
“Just because we’re in care and we may not
have had good upbringing or whatever,
it doesn’t mean because of that you’re
being stopped from having a good future
or going to university. The label ‘care’
shouldn’t stop you from doing it.” Care Leaver

Empowering Dreams and Futures
For children in care
At First Star, our mission is to unlock the full potential of children in foster care. We achieve this through our university-based programmes, where we connect Scholars with positive role models and caring adults who nurture their ambitions, build a culture of achievement and limitless dreams.
First Star empowers children in care to plan for their long-term success, creating an inclusive and supportive environment that paves the way for their bright futures.
