'Helping Handsworth'

Family Foodbank Winter Appeal

This year as a result of the Covid-19 Pandemic, we want to help spread a little Christmas sparkle by donating educational resources, treats and gifts alongside supporting the delivery of our emergency food parcels. We are asking you to donate and help improve the lives of families in Birmingham and stop children going without.

Handsworth Association of Schools is helping our young people with their volunteering, fundraising, campaigning, and ideas for community action. Young people’s energy, passion, and enthusiasm to generate positive change will make sure hundreds of extra families will be cared for this Winter with the help of your donations. We live in an area of high deprivation where poverty is a real issue.

OUR WORK

EDUCATIONAL ADVANCEMENT

We work with schools, families and young people to share learning, resources and expertise for educational improvement. We do this through our learning networks, learning resources and curriculum enhancement initiatives that all Association members have access to.

YOUTH SOCIAL ACTION

Our popular Young People’s Parliament is the focus of our youth social action. We have a Black History Month competition each year and, through our Curriculum Enhancement programme we weave social and environmental awareness into much of our offer.

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

We have always sought to bring together local schools, businesses, charities and families in everything we do. 2020 has proved the importance of this. In setting up the Food Hub to help local families, we have seen these partnerships blossom for community benefit.

STATEMENT ON THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

As a result of the current (November 2020) lockdown measures we have decided to stop our on site activities apart from our foodbank which will continue to operate for all our families that need extra support at this time.

All educational programs will be moved online.

As lock down restrictions are reviewed by the Government we will review our own future practices and restrictions. Please follow our social media accounts or contact us if you need further information.
