Who we are
Action Tutoring is an education charity delivering tutoring programmes in partnership with schools, to support disadvantaged pupils across the country. Education in this country isn’t fair: disadvantaged pupils aren’t less able, but they have less access to the tools to support them to progress. This means they are not able to reach their full potential.
We want to change this through our tutoring support for both primary and secondary pupils - and help pupils achieve regardless of their backgrounds. We recognise how powerful tutoring can be in supporting a child academically and we believe it shouldn't be accessed only by those who can afford it. Disadvantaged pupils aren’t any less able, they just have less access to the opportunities that can help them to progress.
The way we deliver our programmes is by engaging inspiring volunteers as our tutors. Through this activity our volunteers are able to develop and use a wealth of different skills and be connected to the youngest members of their community.
We keep our administrative overheads to a minimum and through the effective use of volunteers we are able to keep our costs very low, however as a small charity we do still need to raise vital funds to survive.
We'd like to say a big thank you for choosing to support us with your fundraising - your efforts will help young people across the country to succeed despite the barriers they currently face.
