Description of activity
We are an independent charity which was established in 1967 that supports the social, emotional and learning needs of children with high learning potential of all ages and backgrounds.
This includes children and young people:
who have been identified as gifted and talented
who have the ability to achieve; but who, for whatever reason, are not achieving their potential
who are dual and multiple exceptional (gifted with a disability or learning difficulty)
who are profoundly gifted
Our aim is to enable every child with high learning potential to grow in confidence, thrive and achieve fulfilment. We achieve this in the following 3 ways:
by working directly with parents and carers to help them support their child with high learning potential, their whole family and the professionals who work with them.
by working with the children and young people themselves to enthuse and challenge them and encourage them to make friends with like-minded peers.
by working with professionals so that they understand the issues and can work with parents to support the social, emotional and learning needs of children and young people with high learning potential.
