Our Next Programme

First Star At Emmanuel College Cambridge

We’re in the process of securing funds for a new four-year programme catering to looked after children in the Cambridge area.

Our objective is to commence the programme in 2025 and recruit a cohort comprising 20 to 30 young people at the end of year 9.

Alumni Voices

First Star helped me find my way. I’m doing travelling, working and I think I’m at the happiest place I've been in a long time. It's nice to have people you can go to to talk about your problems.
First Star is a place to build a story with people who are in a similar situation to your own. A place to learn life skills, go on fun activities and create everlasting memories.
These people here are not just people on a programme, they are my friends, family and siblings now. I love them with all my heart we’ve been through it all.
