Our mission

SHINE believes that all children should have the chance to succeed irrespective of their background and family income. We invest in brilliant educational programmes for disadvantaged young people: after school, at weekends and in the school holidays. We work with teachers and schools on the front line of education, to level the playing field and help vulnerable children gain the education they need to succeed at school and beyond.

Of course, we’d love your support so that we can carry on with the projects we’re supporting. Details of how you can donate online can be found here, and because our trustees cover all of our operating costs, every penny we receive will go directly to the projects and children we support.
