About

TLG The Education Charity’s mission is to help churches bring a hope and a future through education for children and families. We partner with the local church to support children at a crisis point in their education. As a charity we strongly value the role churches can play in reaching out to those needing support in their community. It is through partnership with local churches that we set up Early Intervention and Education Centres, and train church volunteers to support children, young people and families.

Our Education Centres provide intensive support for small groups of young people who have either been excluded or are at risk of being excluded from school.This is a place where young people can continue in their education while also tackling the issues that cause their difficulties in school, whether it is issues at home, bereavement or bullying.

TLG Early Intervention helps local churches work in primary and secondary schools amongst children at risk of exclusion. The project trains volunteer coaches to spend one hour a week with one child for one year. Over 70% of children show improvement in behaviour. The lasting relationship with children and families allow the impact to be even greater.

"TLG have given us the opportunity to do something that we wouldn't think of doing or be able to do on our own. They've given us a package we've bought into and they've given training to those who wanted to volunteer." Rev. Rob Hilton, Christchurch
