Tell us about your organisation (history, aims, vision)

Success4All is an education charity that ensures children and young people have the very best chance at success no matter their circumstances.

We achieve this by engaging, equipping and empowering everyone that walks through our doors.

Our Learning Hubs are relaxed learning environments where children can freely express themselves, seek support and assistance. On hand are our volunteer tutor befrienders that are often also young people either in sixth form or university who act as positive role models.

We run Creativity Clubs and Code Clubs as well as offer STEM workshops to schools and local communities. Our Learning Bus, a mobile learning space, helps us reach communities that we otherwise wouldn’t be able to reach.

Have you adapted your service during the pandemic? 

Like many charities and organisations, all of our services have had to shift online. Whilst at first it was a challenge, once we got settled in, it proved to be a great success.

Our tutoring, Creativity Club and Codes Club all ran very smoothly online. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to run any other clubs like half-term clubs.

We delivered over 500 STEM activity kits to children and young people from across the North East as well as reading books as part of a half-term challenge.

In order to bridge the digital divide, we donated over 20 laptops to the families on our list and started a loaning scheme that allowed us to loan out over 50 laptops. What quickly became clear was that as well as not having access to a device, households also lacked the digital skills through no fault of their own. We then received funding to train 30 BAME mothers/guardians in Google Classrooms.

Our youth group, STAND4 have also had a busy 12 months, from exploring different parts of Northumberland to collaborating with Connected Voice in producing a film as part of DigitalMe.

 

What are your main concerns at the moment?

  1. Funding
  2. Delivery of services: whether to remain online or offer a hybrid of face-to-face & online
