HELP US MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Passion for Learning is looking to provide the children with as many resources and experiences as possible. Many of our children lack enrichment in their home environment and one of our aims is to make children curious about their world and eager to learn. Our resources are bespoke to the needs of the child and we work to encourage their own interests and use their motivations to give them a reason to read and learn.
Schools use some of their income to help fund the cost of retaining a volunteer but increasingly schools’ funds are being used for core business. Children with challenges that undoubtedly impact on their chances of becoming literate and achieving in line with peer expectations are falling further behind. Increasingly Passion for Learning is forced to look elsewhere to supplement income and ensure that the quality of service that we are committed to giving is maintained.
HOW DO WE USE OUR INCOME?
Our one to one volunteer sessions are our core business. We aim to enlist the help of the highest quality of volunteer support available. That said, we are committed to establishing a diverse and inclusive Volunteer Team of community volunteers. The process of developing a resilient team with strong retention figures is key to our success.
Advertising in local community magazines
Leaflets in local community facilities

Once a volunteer approaches us we arrange to see them individually to ensure that they have the skills and commitment to support the children. We then pay for every volunteer to have a DBS check and send for references.
