School-Home Support (SHS)

School-Home Support (SHS) is a charity working with children and families to maximise educational opportunities and improve life chances. Partnering with schools, local authorities and families, SHS looks beyond the classroom to understand and tackle the issues affecting children’s learning. Since 1984, we have used early intervention to break intergenerational cycles of low aspirations, academic failure and worklessness, replacing them with children in school ready to learn.
