EaCES Pen Pal Exchange – EaCES

EaCES Pen Pal Exchange - EaCES

We are EaCES (pronounced ee-ay-cez) - that stands for Estranged and Care Estranged Students. 

Our mission is to provide a central space that signposts to support and guidance that is accessible to our community in all areas of our lives, with a particular focus on supporting access to further and higher education.

We are a peer support platform by and for students who are estranged, care experienced, care leavers, orphaned and at risk of/wishing to become estranged. We also seek to raise awareness of our existence and to encourage colleges/universities, governing bodies, widening access programmes and schools to up their support.

 

EaCES Pen Pal Exchange

Are you an estranged, care-experienced or orphaned student/apprentice or recent graduate?

Then this pen pal exchange is for you (UK/Ireland). As long as you are over 18, it doesn't matter what age of student you are or level of degree. We welcome further education all the way to PhD students.

If you provide us with your name, email/address and a bit of info about yourself, we will do our best to match you with someone who shares similar hobbies and interests. Once we have matched you with a pen pal, we will send you both an email so you can get started with writing to each other. We will then delete your information off our Google Form for your privacy although we may contact you directly by email to ask how you're finding being a pen pal.

 
You can request more than one pen pal or also get back in touch with us to request another pen pal in future too.
