LetsLocalise, a social initiative, has come up with an innovative solution to this challenge. Surveys show that there is a real desire in local communities beyond pupils’ parents to help their local schools. Up to 60% say they want to contribute with skills, experience, knowledge, and finances.
LetsLocalise uses an easy-to-use digital platform to allow schools to showcase their priority programs. Local people can then volunteer to specific programs, confident that their generosity will make a difference.
Similarly, local businesses can choose how they help, perhaps framing their social investment programs around local schools’ needs or simply making pupils aware of what the world of work is really like.
LetsLocalise is a simple but groundbreaking way of enabling schools to tap into support that they have historically found difficult to access. The service is free of charge to all state schools.
