All over the UK, children are struggling in school for all kinds of reasons and many families are suffering without hope. The effects of bullying, bereavement, family breakdown, poverty or being in the care system can have a huge impact on a child’s education. Some children may be struggling with a lack of confidence, have no positive role models, or just need an adult to talk to. The Light church runs a TLG Early intervention program whereby a team of volunteers from our church give 1 child, 1 hour a week of support in school. The pupils the team have supported this year are better engaged with their education and making friends in the church youth groups. The schools we work with have identified more pupils who need support.
