Practical support for struggling families The Brabners Foundation SHS

In 2022, The Brabners Foundation pledged £5,000 to UK charity SHS (School-Home Support), which helps disadvantaged children and young people to overcome barriers to education.


Nine in every classroom in poverty

According to SHS, 4.2 million children — an average of nine in every classroom — live in poverty. If this isn’t shocking enough, the ‘poverty trap’ can lead to a lifetime of deprivation and poor health.


SHS’ impact

Our donation went towards The SHS Welfare Fund. This gives the poorest families a helping hand in times of desperate need by providing practical items like school uniforms, food and essential household appliances.

This fund is often the key to opening doors to ‘hard-to-reach’ families, sparking dialogue and more sustained support.

63% of the children SHS works with improve their school attendance by 7.8%.

As well as making a grant of £5,000, the Brabners Foundation has also worked with SHS on its annual Christmas Wish List and World Book Day initiatives, with colleagues purchasing gifts and books for disadvantaged children.
