'Back to school Scheme'
As part of our work, Second Chance operate a ‘back to school’ scheme for inner city children. Taking referrals from schools or social services, we work at reintegrating non-attendees back into regular full time education.
Charity information: Second Chance
Taking referrals from schools or social services, we work at reintegrating non-attendees back into regular full time education. These children are not attending school for a variety of reasons; They may have been permanently excluded, parentally neglected, or they may be ‘school phobic’, to name a few. Whatever the reason, we work with them to get them back into full time education gradually and support them when they are back.
