RNCF recognises Wolfson Foundation’s support

April 2015

 

The Wolfson Foundation has today received an award from the Royal National Children’s Foundation in recognition of its contribution towards the RNCF’s work improving the educational opportunities of vulnerable young people in Britain. In December 2013 the Wolfson Foundation committed £225,000 over 3 years to the charity’s work, supporting children who have suffered trauma, tragedy, poverty or neglect in their young lives with places at boarding schools.

Receiving the award from the RNCF’s Chief Executive, Geoffrey Dennis, Paul Ramsbottom, Chief Executive of the Wolfson Foundation, said:

“We are delighted to be supporting the RNCF. The Wolfson Foundation has funded high quality secondary education over many years, and it is increasingly important to us to consider ways in which we can help all children access such schools, especially those from challenging backgrounds who might gain the most from such opportunities. The outstanding work of the RNCF makes them an ideal partner providing both hope and opportunity for these children. We very much hope that our funding will encourage others to support the RNCF, to allow them to continue to expand their work – and ultimately to allow children who are supported through the programme to demonstrate what can be achieved when the opportunity is given.”
