Do you believe it is time to put leadership and life skills at the heart of education?

Do you believe these life-changing skills should be available to all students, irrespective of their background, the school they go to or how much their parents earn? Are you ready to create change?

If yes, then we’re glad you found us.

Whether you’re a corporate changemaker or a school looking to secure funding, you’ll find all the info you need about Fair Chance Funding and how you can get involved.

Help us create change,
we can’t do it alone

The way we’re developing young people is not working. It’s time for a different path.

A path that proactively enables social mobility, embraces diversity and means that your background is no longer the key determinant of your success. A path that creates a collaborative, resilient, purpose-led generation: young people who create lives they love and make meaningful contributions to our communities, organisations and society. It’s time to put human development at the heart of education.

This change requires socially driven, courageous organisations to play their part.

The question is, are you ready to play yours?

Accessing Fair Chance Funding

The Ivy House Award develops game-changing life and leadership skills in students, bringing critical personal and professional development to young people – at a time when it can make the biggest difference. The programme is facilitated by passionate teachers, either face-to-face or virtually.

You can approach companies you have connections with for support. We’ve put together a pack that you can use to help you pitch Fair Chance Funding – feel free to download it below. A local company could support you for as little as £5,000.

We’re on a mission to make it available to any student who wants it – irrespective of their background, the school they go to or how much their parents earn.

In addition to this we offer places on our award-winning Life Leader programme to teachers who are determined to give their pupils the kind of development they deserve.
