Opportunity for expert partners to work with families in responding to exclusions

Social Finance is inviting applications to partner in our established Maximising Access to Education Programme, through securing the engagement and participation of families in building local responses to exclusion from school.

The programme is based in Cheshire West and Chester and Gloucestershire areas, and we are looking for a partner in each local area to work directly with children and young people affected by exclusion, along with their parents and carers.
