Children Matter - Learning Together

Children Matter - Learning Together is a unique project run by Age UK South Staffordshire in partnership with Age UK North Staffordshire and Entrust. The project now covers all of Staffordshire. The project was launched in September 2016 and is funded by the Big Lottery Fund for three years. We aim to recruit and train volunteers aged 50+ to help out in primary schools listening to children read. This new project follows on from a successful Children Matter project which came third in the Best Education Project category in the National Lottery Awards in 2016. Our volunteers inform us that volunteering with the children is very rewarding, and the children enjoy and benefit from the interaction with older adults.
