Unite Foundation

Our Team

We’re a small team with big ambitions for Foundation students. We are in touch with Unite Foundation students every week, from before they arrive at university through to graduation and beyond. We are supported by our Unite Students colleagues who provide valuable expertise and time across finance, communications and operations.

Helen Arber

Head of Operations

My role is to ensure that everything the Foundation does supports the success of care leavers and estranged students. Contact me about strategic partnerships, research and how the Foundation could improve.


Laura Bowman


My role involves booking accommodation, coordinating with universities and offering support to ensure scholarship students have the tools they need for academic and personal success.


Beki Rymsza

Brand and Communications Manager

I ensure that the experience of care leaver and estranged students is known and promoted both within the Foundation and wider. I'd love to hear from you if you have lived experience and a point you want to share.
