Our 2015-16 annual results

Together we are helping disadvantaged students to achieve more

Each year we look forward to sharing with you the results of the work we do through our Annual Report. You made it possible for us to help thousands of disadvantaged students last year. What’s more, this support brings ongoing benefits for the year ahead.

Because of you, Learning for Life students are getting ready to go back to school with an outlook full of possibilities. They believe in themselves. They know they will have continued wrap-around support to help them do their best at school. Most of all, they know that people like you care about their futures, and that’s a powerful motivator.
