The work we do ⇒

The work we do
Securing Success was established in 2016. The grant from John Lyon's Charity was our launch donation, and our intention is to leverage it to attract other funding that can be used to create new initiatives.

All of the activities are designed to meet our aim of promoting the education of children, young people and families in North West London. We shall particularly focus on the needs of vulnerable young people such as those eligible for FSM/Pupil premium, new arrivals, those at risk of negative influences such as gang involvement, and others.

The types of activities we intend to create are a mixture of delivering work ourselves as well as supporting and working with statutory and voluntary sector partners. Activities will consist of supporting groups such as supplementary schools, advancing the attainment and integration of pupils experiencing disadvantage through working with schools or developing our own work, and also providing funding for partner organisations.
