School-Home Support gets children and young people back into school, ready to learn, whatever it takes. For over 35 years, School-Home Support has been working with children, families and schools to break the long-term cycle of deprivation. What starts as poor school attendance becomes low educational attainment, anti-social behaviour, crime, low paid or no job – generation after generation.

You will be confident developing strategy, approaching and securing new funders as well as delivering exemplary stewardship. You will be an excellent writer and communicator and will relish the opportunity of working collaboratively internally to develop and manage project funding.
