Thanks to a Reaching Communities grant from the Big Lottery Fund we are planning to extend our team and recruit new Family Entrepreneurs in South East Northumberland to work with schools in Blyth, Ashington, Bedlington, Newbiggin and surrounding areas.

Our project will replicate the existing and successful Improving Futures and will aim to improve attendance and achievement for primary school aged children by working with their whole families on the underlying issues that impact their educational experience.

This is a great opportunity for us and we are hugely excited to be working in these locations; we will keep you abreast of developments but in the meantime if you know of any parents who have experienced and overcome disadvantage and would be interested in applying for our recruitment process and training course, do get in touch.

Help make a difference - please share!
