I am so desperate to study social work at university and influence the future of our society and social work support systems. However SFE will not provide me with nearly enough of a loan to cover living alone in my flat and having to give up my job to go and study therefore loosing my only source of income. This is because I am under the age of 25 (I'm 22) and therefore they expect my parents to still financially pay for me which is just wrong. I am an adult and don't want my divorced low income parents to be responsible for whether or not I can attend university and put that kind of financial pressure on them.
So I suppose this is a plea for anything you can spare to allow me to put this money aside to be able to live the basics day to day whilst studying, to make it possible.
Thankyou for the support and I appreciate anything you can spare. I promise to repay you all by becoming an amazing social worker and helping our society.
