Helping support initiatives to improve literacy and numeracy skills in the Bailiwick of Guernsey.

Every Child Our Future LBG (“ECOF”) is a registered charity created to support initiatives to improve both literacy and numeracy skills in Guernsey and cultivate a culture whereby the community collectively takes responsibility for education.

It is a collaboration between the business sector, the community, States Education Department and schools to provide support and funding to tackle the widening gap between the highest and lowest achievers and the rich and poor. Research clearly demonstrates that children from a socially deprived background are far more likely to fall below the standard literacy and numeracy skills expected at key stage 1 and 2.

We are looking for businesses to collaborate on this initiative by providing funding to provide training and materials for the specialised teacher and teaching assistant interventions and allow employees to act as volunteer mentors regularly during term time.
