We work with communities in areas of high deprivation because every child deserves the right to succeed, no matter where they live.
No single organisation can solve complex social problems on their own but together, we can.
Children living in poverty are unable to realise their potential
Too many children in the UK are not getting the right start in life, leaving them unable to realise their full potential.
Children living in poverty will be 4 months behind their peers when they start school. This gap widens over time.
On average these children are up to 2 years behind their peers by the time they leave secondary school.
Supporting long-term sustainable change
We bring together residents, professionals and decision-makers to co-design a long-term programme that is bespoke to the needs of the local community.
We call this way of working “place-based change”.
What will it take?
Together with our partners, we have invested in a collective impact approach, that focuses on long lasting impact.
Through our programmes, which work in areas where poverty levels are high, we have identified some persistent themes for those struggling to thrive in education.
We use data to assess need in different areas, and focus on reducing educational disadvantage and removing the barriers that stand in young people’s way as they move from school to adulthood.
