Education is a huge part of the work that we do at Compton Care. Whether it’s at our in house Learning and Development Centre, or out in the community, education is key to enabling us to change the misconceptions surrounding our work.
Our Schools Liaison and Events Fundraiser regularly visits schools and other places of learning to discuss how you can get involved and support us. We can give talks in assemblies or come into your lessons to discuss what we do, and its importance to the people of your community. We can tailor our talks to your requirements, or can work with smaller groups of students for a more interactive way of learning.
How can my school get involved?
Our running costs are around £7.9million every year, and with just one third of this coming from government funding, we rely heavily on the fundraising efforts of our supporters.
Fundraising is a great way to get students of all ages working together and practising valuable employability skills including teamwork, organisation and communication. You could even choose to fundraise in a way that will enhance your school curriculum, adding an exciting hands on element to your learning.
Whether you want to hold your own event, attend one of ours or give your time in the form of volunteering, there’s a way for everyone to get involved and we’re here to guide you through the whole process.
