How We Help

'Tutors for GRT' project

This project helps Gypsy, Roma and Traveller pupils to connect with DBS checked volunteer tutors during (and hopefully after) the Covid-19 school closures. The project takes into consideration parents possible illiteracy and digital exclusion levels.

Read all about the impact of digital exclusion on GRT pupils here, in a case study we presented to the HEAR network in June 2020.
