We run all our projects in collaboration with family support professionals in Luton schools, nurseries and other organisations.
We have fantastic ‘Link Workers’ in each (most often Family Workers or those in pastoral support roles) who connect us with children and families who need help with the cost of school.
Link Workers have an incredible amount of knowledge and energy. The Link Worker network gives them a chance to get together to understand the current picture of child poverty in Luton, and to share their experiences and knowledge. Working together in this way means we are all able to have a bigger impact.
We run regular meetings and an annual Child Poverty Conference for Link Workers to share information and ideas that will improve family work across the town.
