The William Wates Memorial Trust is delighted to announce a grant of £15,000 over two years to Springboard.

Springboard is committed to its vision of challenging the effects of under achievement in deprived inner city areas through its focussed approach to literacy. Springboard currently teaches nearly 300 children twice a week, providing basic reading and writing skills. These basic literacy skills provide the foundation for them to reach their full educational potential.

WWMT funded training workshops to equip teaching volunteers with the skills that enable them to provide effective and engaging lessons.
