Since 2015, Action for Children have been proudly working in partnership with Turner & Townsend who are funding the Education Fund, which provides vital grants for disadvantaged children and families to cover the cost of essential educational materials.

More than one in four children in the UK live in poverty. For families living in poverty, classroom materials, revision guides and uniforms can become an additional financial burden that they simply cannot afford. Not having the correct equipment or schoolbooks can stop children from being able to participate fully and complete their school and homework. Not having a uniform that fits, or broken school shoes, can lead to feelings of worthlessness, bullying and truancy, all negatively affecting their ability to learn and achieve their potential. By supporting struggling families to buy vital educational items, together with Turner & Townsend we are breaking down barriers to education and giving children the opportunity to thrive.

Turner & Townsend employees across the UK raise funds by taking part and organising fundraising events and so far, they have raised over £500,000 for Action for Children. Turner & Townsend have also provided valuable pro-bono support, including mentoring for senior leaders and advising on Action for Children’s internal transformation programme. Additionally, colleagues across the UK have volunteered through a range of activities from supporting Byte Night to painting children's centres.
