Despite Covid-19 PJE Foundation Continues To Support Mature Students

2020 has been a challenging year for everyone, and mature students have been hit during the Covid-19 pandemic. This has meant that some students, being supported by the charity have not been able to continue their studies this year. Now that students are back, the charity is working to find new students to support in the coming academic year.

Earlier this year, PJE made a donation to provide a grant for a mature student starting their second year in studying to become an Adult Care Social Worker.
