United Kingdom

We believe all young children should have happy, healthy childhoods and the same chance of succeeding in life, regardless of their background. Through our work across the UK we support young children living in poverty by improving their early learning - narrowing the gap between these children and their better off classmates.

OUR WORK IN THE UK

 In homes

Families and Schools Together - Ahlam at a FAST sessionWe support families to create a positive home environment, and give them the tools they need to support their children's learning at home

 

 In nurseries

It's proven that high quality childcare makes a vital difference to early learning, particularly for the UK's poorest children. That's why we're calling on the government to invest in their futures.

 In schools

We're bringing parents, children and teachers together to make sure children get the support they need to fulfil their potential at school - and in life.

 

 In communities

We help agencies work together to make sure that whatever our poorest children need, and at whatever stage of their development they need it, help is at hand.
