Your opportunity to support vulnerable children in Norfolk by ending the high levels of exclusion from mainstream education.

We need YOUR help

To meet the extensive need in Norfolk , we need your help. Schools sit at the heart of every community, and with your support, we can transform communities in Norfolk.

Together we will break cycles of low achievement, we will reduce antisocial behaviour and we will help our children and young people to flourish into ambitious, confident and resilient young people for years to come. We estimate that after the first three years of running the Boxall Nurture Hub®, the project will be self-funding through nurtureuk’s traded services, pupil premium and other statutory funding, but right now to run the pilot Hub for three years, we need to raise £250,000. Please consider becoming our partner to change the lives of young people in Norfolk Your support will ensure that no child in Norfolk fails through lack of nurture or educational opportunity.
