  • Need

    Need

    Lack of important life skills: The children's academic difficulties manifests itself in many ways- poor academic performance, being bullied, unable to keep up in class and unable to work as part of a team.
    High rate of unemployment: Research has shown that children from parents who are unemployed and are on mean tested benefits, not having the right role models, very often do the same when growing up.

    Solution

    High about Homework! with its high staff ratio will provide support which will be all encompassing. The children's increased academic performance will improve their chances for further education and employ-ability. Focusing on each child's individual strength and showing them that they can achieve, together with their confidence boost on seeing their successes will greatly improve their self-esteem and make them into more confident adults who will want to work and contribute to society.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    Improve academic performance and boost confidence for young adults from deprived families in London.

    Activities

    » High about Homework will provide 20 young people one to one support after school hours.

    Success will be: improved academic performance and success in all areas of life.


  • Impact

    Impact

    Long term changes will be increased employment of children from families of parents who are unemployed in our target area. They will be more confident adults and ready to take necessary risks.
    We will demonstrate this by keeping track of our beneficiaries going into further education and being employed.

    Risk

    Safeguarding: We will have all safeguarding policies and procedures in place and all staff will undergo checks and training prior to being employed.
    Children dropping out during program and poor attendance: we will provide incentives for timekeeping and attendance, with extra incentives for those completing the program.

    Reporting

    We will report to donors by compiling a report with pictures and statistics drawn together from questionnaires and tracking, half way through the program and upon completion of the program.

  • Background

    Location

    Our target area is London Borough of Hackney Hackney is a young borough with nearly 25% of its population under 20 years, causing services for young people to be overstretched. The high percent of benefit claimants- 12.4% and higher than average unemployed -7.2% makes this area an overall deprived borough with lots of young people hanging around. We aim to break the cycle of deprivation=low academic performance=unemployment in these families.

    Beneficiaries

    20 young people aged 7-11 from deprived families living in London Borough of Hackney, who are falling behind in their academic performance.
