Coffee Proceeds July - September 2015

Church Coffee donations during July, Aug, and Sept, will go to Level Trust which works in partnership with schools and families to ensure that every child in Luton living in poverty has what they need to do their very best at school.


 
Level Trust exists to remove the barriers that poverty brings to a child's education in Luton. We work in partnership with schools and families to ensure that every child has what they need to do their very best at school.

We exist to help children living in poverty in Luton get the most out of their education. We aim to 'level the playing field' for children and young people so that regardless of background every child can have access to the same resources and opportunities as their peers.

At Level Trust we believe that if a child can get the most out of their education they will have the best chance of lifting themselves and their family out of poverty for the future.

Poverty can present a real barrier to education. Children can lack basic items such as a comfortable school uniform, learning resources such as crayons and paints in the home and can come to school hungry. Further more, children living in poverty can often lack opportunities outside of school time which their peers can engage in. Musical instrument lessons, dance lessons, trips to the seaside, the swimming pool or the cinema can be out of the question. These experiences out of school are great learning opportunities for children and without them a child can be at a real disadvantage.

At Level trust, we want to ensure that poverty no longer acts as a barrier to education and children and young people have all they need to do the very best they can.

In light of this partnership with schools is clearly vital for Level Trust. When it comes to supporting children and families who are living in poverty, schools are on the front line.

We work with schools to meet our aim in three main ways. Firstly we develop specific schemes which provide free resources to children and young people, secondly we support family work professionals and thirdly we are developing our funding stream which will provide match funding to schools.
