The Social Mobility Foundation is a charity that exists to support high-achieving young people from low-income backgrounds into the top universities and professions. Our core programme, the Aspiring Professionals Programme (APP), is completely free of charge and supports high-achieving students in Birmingham, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Newcastle and Cardiff.
Successful applicants are provided with a programme of e-mentoring, skills development, tailored university visits, university application support . Support continues whilst the students are at university, in order to give them the best chance of entering the profession they aspire to.
We're taking part in this year's Big Give which means that from now until noon on 8 December, any donations to the Social Mobility Foundation made through the Big Give platform will be doubled. That's right - a donation of £10 will be worth £20 to us (£25 with Gift Aid). One donation, twice the impact.
There are schools throughout the country struggling to provide home learning support to their poorer pupils. Despite teachers efforts, kids without a computer or online access are getting behind on their studies, they simply do not have the same access to online educational resources their school friends who do have computers and internet access use. With your support, Every Child Online aims to close this educational gap and ensure all our children have the correct equipment to learn from home.
Please donate your PCs and laptops (those under ten years old) to Every Child Online. Your donated equipment will be securely cleared of any company data by our sponsors Sunrise Technologies. They also clean up all the equipment, upgrade its software and give your newly refurbished PCs and Laptops to us to deliver it to the schools that need them.

52 Lives aims to change someone's life every week of the year and spread kindness. It is based on the simple premise that people are good, and lots of good people working together can achieve amazing things. We believe that kindness has the power to change people's lives, strengthen communities and ultimately change the world - while improving our own well-being at the same time. People from all over the world can nominate someone in need of help.
Every week we choose someone to help, share their story, request what they need and our supporters help to change their life.
One of the things that makes 52 Lives unique is that 100% of what people give goes to the person we are helping each week. Not a penny goes to 52 Lives.
52 Lives is supported by almost 100,000 kind people and a range of high profile individuals who help us to change lives every single week.
