As part of our SMSC learning this half term alongside the approach of Lent and Ramadan we are working collaboratively as a year group of many different beliefs and faiths to come together to give back to our community.
Each child is looking to be sponsored by adults in their community. All money raised will go to a charity of the children’s choice. This will be a great opportunity to be reflective and considerate of others, whilst also learning to be proactive and organised whilst handling money. A brief outline of each charity is provided below. Please read before completing the voting poll.
Following research undertaken by Centrepoint into youth homelessness in Warwickshire, Nuneaton and Bedworth Doorway became a registered charity in 1997. Originally based in Bedworth with two employees we developed a range of services to advise and support young people aged 16 – 25 who are homeless or threatened with homelessness.
In 2012 they revisited our mission statement and aim:
- Our mission is to give homeless young people a future through advice, accommodation options, support and life skills development.
- Our aim is to make sure that vulnerable, homeless young people can look forward with optimism, raise their aspirations and improve their quality of life
