Description of the charities activities and outcomes
We provide children in out of home care the opportunity to change the direction of their lives with learning, life skills and confidence. We recruit, screen, train and support volunteers (learning mentors) who are matched with a child in care, spending time with them once a week, focusing on learning-based activities. Volunteers read books, play educational games and help children with their homework. Most importantly, the volunteers give children in out of home care a chance to reach their life potential. Children in care have the lowest education outcomes nationally. By improving their learning skills, The Pyjama Foundation is making a positive, life-long impact. More information can be located at
