The link between low family income and educational attainment is greater in the UK than in almost any other developed country. And barriers to educational attainment don't just affect grades – they can result in a life of unfulfilled potential, afflicted by difficulties – job insecurity, low income and health problems – that have a knock-on effect on following generations, perpetuating cycles of deprivation.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
We are an education charity and a growing movement to create social change through greater inclusiveness in education. Our vision is of a society where no child’s educational achievement is limited by their family's income. For the last 12 years we have played a part in changing the lives of thousands of young people.
