Our Mission & Goals

Caitlin’s Kickstart Award became a registered charity in April 2002 with the aim of providing financial assistance to Ludlow College graduates for the following year of studies in further or higher education. CKA is offered in all academic and vocational disciplines. The award is not available for a gap year.

Our young people face ever-increasing costs in continuing their formal education and training. The Founders and Trustees of this unique award are persuaded that education should be a fundamental right and are making every effort to build a permanent trust. Caitlin’s Kickstart Award is a modest but significant attempt to address this issue, and we know that this support makes a significant difference to the lives of our growing band of recipients.
