Jack's Club is a fundraising initiative that aims to raise over £1 million by 2020 to support the significant expansion of our work with disadvantaged children, including Looked After Children.

Why Jack's Club is needed

Last year over 175,000 children left primary school unable to read to the required level. In addition, there are approximately 70,000 Looked After Children in the UK today, many of whom have been taken into care because of abuse or neglect by a family member. Entering the care system can cause further trauma and have a detrimental impact on children's well-being and educational achievement.

Jack's Club can help these children start a new chapter in their lives by providing them with the skills and confidence they need to reach their true potential. 

Our aspiration

Funds raised by Jack's Club will enable us to:

  • Expand and develop our work with Looked After Children in areas with the highest rate of Looked After Children. 
  • Launch a new education sales strategy which will focus on engaging Virtual School Heads who are responsible for promoting the educational achievement of all the children look after by their local authority.
  • Evaluate our work with Looked After Children to ensure it is meeting all of their complex needs.
  • Focus on the social and emotional support of Looked After Children and widen their experience.

This Beanstalk support provided to each child will be carefully measured to: 

  • Measure progress in their reading and attainment
  • Increase confidence and self-esteem
  • Increase enjoyment of reading
