    1 March 2021: Uni Connect (NCOP) - Linking London Update

    As of the end of January 2021, we have exceeded our OfS target of working with over 20% of ward learners in our 13 target wards. 306 ‘ward learners’ have participated in at least one activity, and 42% of these have participated in three or more activities, which is really positive in relation to our aim of providing a sustained programme of support. We have also worked with an additional 179 learners who are not from our target wards, but who overlap with the target demographic according to a range of measures. 89% of the total cohort of students we have worked with are classified as disadvantaged by at least one indicator.
