Thank you.

We reach over 6,000 young people every year giving them regular philosophy sessions that develop their thinking, their communication and their confidence. Our sessions have been shown to impact most on disadvantaged pupils, developing their reading and higher-order thinking. 

Please read our Social Impact Report to find out more about the work we do.

We are currently living through one of the most austere times in education. Money is scarce but programmes that help children think better and more clearly are needed more than ever. As a result we are having to find new ways forward to reach out to the most disenfranchised and to continue to work with those who need it most.
Your donations help us in so many ways, and 95% of our income goes towards our charitable work. £30 pays for a term of philosophy for one child and if all the members of our website gave us £10 we could reach a further 1,300 young people every year. If all our twitter followers gave to the campaign we could triple the amount of children we reach each year.

90% of our schools have more than the average number of pupils receiving pupil premium payment and free school meals. 56% of our schools have double the national average of pupils on free school meals. We are a national charity working with schools from Jersey to the Highlands of Scotland.
