We are excited to announce our new partnership with The National Children’s Bureau (NCB), to whom we have granted over £183,000 for their Belonging Matters project.

As one of the leading experts on SEND in children’s education, health and social care sectors, NCB are well placed to drive change on a national level in areas such as exclusion, persistent absence and inclusive practises. Their project will design, deliver and evaluate a new practical approach towards fostering a sense of belonging within a whole school community. They will recruit 10 schools who will co-design their evidence-based, training programme, and after reflection on its impact, NCB will share their findings across the sector.

We very much look forward to seeing the influence this can have on schoolchildren’s education!
