Lord Haughey has acquired the first 2000 licences which are being given to disadvantaged children and young people in Scotland. We will be working with different charities and areas to give these licences out and below are just a few of the charities and organisations that are benefitting from these free licences.
The Volunteer Tutors Organisation (VTO) is a charity, registered in 1977, which provides support for children who experience difficulties with their education. We recruit, train, place, resource and support volunteer tutors to give one-to-one educational support and guidance to children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Home-Start is a local community network of trained volunteers and expert support helping families with young children through these challenging times. We are there for parents when they need us the most because childhood can’t wait.
YOUNG people across East Lothian who struggled with learning during lockdown can now benefit from a pioneering tutoring initiative launched by Queen Margaret University, Musselburgh. We will also be working with young people in Mid Lothian this coming year
The Archie Foundation exists to make the difference in healthcare and bereavement for children and their families across the north of Scotland. We do this by working in partnership with the NHS and other child development professionals including, but not limited to, those working in the education and social work sectors.
Action for Children
Action for Children protects and supports children and young people, providing practical and emotional care and support, ensuring their voices are heard, and campaigning to bring lasting improvements to their lives.
