School-Home Support’s vision is that every child has the support they need to thrive and achieve by helping disadvantaged, vulnerable and disaffected children overcome barriers to learning. Our grant of £100,000 will support their core-costs, specifically their work in London.

School Home-Support partner with schools, local authorities, communities and other children’s settings They provide personalised support to children and families to understand and tackle the issues affecting children’s learning, such as poverty, inadequate housing, and mental ill-health. Since 1984, they have used early intervention to break intergenerational cycles of deprivation and low aspiration, and tackle the underlying barriers to successful education in order to improve the life chances of children.

It is hoped that with our funding, they will be able to reach over 18,000 people. We wish them all the best with this ambitious target.
