Last year, the Young Fabian Aspiration Fund raised funds to support families with no recourse to public funds who were facing the economic challenges of preparing for secondary school. The money raised throughout the year provided support for year 6 pupils to purchase the equipment, resources and school uniforms they would need as they started school.
Thanks to the generosity of our members, we were able to raise £1026.10 and put our principles into practice by supporting the work of counselling charity, NOPA. Take a look at the blog from that first event.
One year on, many of those children have started secondary school better equipped this September. Therefore, we are inviting you to a special evening where you can hear how that money was used, the difference it made and the challenges that still need tackling through evidence-based policy generation.
We'll be joined by Marlene Ford, Project Manager for NOPA, who led this project in conjunction with Ria Bernard.
We hope you can join us for an evening in which you have the chance to see the impact of recent policy decisions on our local communities - and the life-chances of our children - and learn about what needs to be done to equalise educational attainment and support our most vulnerable families.
