Choices Together Progressive Programme

Support young carers and care-experienced young people to navigate their future aspirations

Do you have experience as a caregiver or young carer? If so, you could be a positive role model to inspire young people to realise their potential.

As part of NCL in Action 2024, we have collaborated with North East Raising Aspiration Partnership to help deliver their Choices Together Progressive Programme.

The North East Raising Aspiration Partnership is a collaboration of the five universities in the North East of England (Durham, Newcastle, Northumbria, Sunderland and Teesside) working together to support young people to think about their futures and how higher education can help them reach their goals. They are also committed to providing additional support for students who are care-experienced or a young carer.

Their Choices Together Progressive Programme supports young carers and care-experienced young people aged 11-18 in navigating their future aspirations. They are incredibly driven to build a programme that not only provides a community of support, but also provides extensive opportunities to explore their future choices, whatever they may be.
