Education, Learning & Life Skills

Education, Learning & Life Skills

Equality of access to education is vital to an individual’s life chances and ensuring that they fulfil their potential. The Suffolk voluntary sector offers a range of complimentary education based services that enhance personal developmentlearning and skills and increase aspirations. They work with adultsyoung people and their parents, including those with disability and mental health issues, ex-offenders and many from diverse communities who do not have English as their first language.  

Intergenerational learning and broadening access to a wider cross section of communities encourages people to break down barriers that have traditionally held people back. During the pandemic we have and continue to recognise and support the development of those, who without extra help, are likely to fall behind their peers. Our grantmaking has focused on supporting the adaption and upscaling of existing educational services. We also seek to encourage creative thinking and new projects that ensure a continued cycle of connection and learning between organisations and the vulnerable people they support.  

The charities providing education, learning and life skills in Suffolk need your financial and practical support to do their work.

Why people support education, learning & life skills

I am delighted to raise funds which have reached Suffolk charities through the work of Suffolk Community Foundation. They always clearly understand the need and help others to deliver results, right where they are needed. The education of our young people is crucial to the future well-being of all of us, and our local charities do a fantastic job in helping people become the best that they can be.
