The link between low income and low academic attainment is greater in the UK than almost any other developed nation. Children eligible for free school meals are less likely to get good GCSEs and go on to higher education. This makes it more likely they will struggle throughout their lives, widening social inequality. It's a cycle that we're determined to break.

It covers all aspects of the charity's programmes to help drive value for money, realise cost savings and drive the improvement of contract management practice across the organisation.
