Giving a level start to children
We exist to help children living in poverty in Luton get the most out of their education. We aim to 'level the playing field' for children and young people so that regardless of background every child can have access to the same resources and opportunities as their peers.
Becoming a partner school
In order to benefit from schemes, access our resources for family workers and apply for school funds, a school must become a partner school. In order to become a partner school, an initial meeting with a member of Level Trust staff must be held. Following this conversation, and subject to the agreement of both parties, Level Trust will invite the school to sign our partnership agreement. If you would like to meet with a member of Level Trust staff to find out more about becoming a partner school, please contact us. To download the Level Trust partnership agreement click here.
We are in the process of developing our volunteer programme. If you have expertise in family work, working with children and young people, admin or schools and would like to give your time, please do get in touch. We will be very happy to hear from you.
Level Trust is a charity and relies on the support of generous individuals, trust funds and grants from local businesses. If you would like to support our work as we endeavour to support Luton's children and young people, please use our giving form, which you can download here.
In Luton 27% of families are living in relative poverty, according to government figures. Relative poverty means that a family, after housing, is living off £12 a day. So a family living in relative poverty has £12 a day to pay for all bills, food, travel, clothing and anything the family might need. Anyone who is living or has lived off this amount will tell you it is not easy and, if any unexpected costs come in, it is sometimes impossible. Level Trust is working with schools to help families who are not always able to afford the things their children need to thrive at school. If you are a parent and would like more information about Level Trust and how we can help your child, please contact us.
