There are TWO main ways that we support schools and colleges across Norfolk. This is either intensively through out 'TᖇᗩᑎSᖴOᖇᗰᗩTIᐯE ᑭᖇOGᖇᗩᗰᗰE' or occasionally through our 'ᗪIY ᑭᖇOGᖇᗩᗰᗰE'. Every school/college that we are privileged to be working with are also able to access our additional charitable too.
Schools that have followed our 'TᖇᗩᑎSᖴOᖇᗰᗩTIᐯE ᑭᖇOGᖇᗩᗰᗰE' do so over the course of an entire academic year where the charity has either 'kick started' a new project or 'rebooted' a forgotten project at a school. During this time we also work to engage with a school's local community to help to 'grow help'. This is crucial to helping to 'future proof' projects and making them sustainable.
Many these schools (please see list below) now subsequently follow our 'ᗪIY ᑭᖇOGᖇᗩᗰᗰE' which is another way we help to keep projects going long term, but with the help of the local community too! We know how busy teaching can be and so we continue to provide occasional support to schools for as long as they feel they need help. Making it all sustainable is absolutely paramount!
