be a mentor

OurGirls Mentoring is a platform which connects Year 10 - 13 girls, particularly from ethnic minorities and disadvantaged backgrounds, to young professionally successful mentors. Become a mentor and help reduce professional and educational inequality. 


End school cuts 

Government funding cuts are leaving 93% of schools worse off, and are leading to increased class sizes, loss of staff and an average loss of £436 per pupil per year. The School Cuts site suggests ways to take action to prevent further damage to the system. 


Fund journalism

High quality investigative journalism is a crucial mechanism for holding authorities to account. Show your support for integrity in the press by reading, sharing and funding the work of the Bureau of Investigative Journalism.
