We greatly value support from charitable trusts. Your donations enable us to make a real difference with our work.
We are always looking for grants and donations to enable us to visit more schools across England and Wales. Our talks and presentations are provided free of charge to schools and are consistently rated as excellent by teachers. Talks can be provided in person to schools within a 30 mile radius of YPTE’s offices in Yeovil, or to anywhere in the UK online vie Zoom, Google Meetings or Teams. Donations of any size can help us to contine this service and to provide free talks to schools in specific areas.
Donations from charities can also help to provide free places for primary schools in the UK to take part in our ‘Better Planet Schools’ online education programme. This provides schools with a large amount of downloadable content such as lesson plans and presentations, along with suggestions for activities. Schools taking part in our pilot scheme saved 10-15% of the annual energy usage through child-led behaviour change - and saving energy is only one of a range of issues that Better Planet Schools addresses.
We are constantly developing new materials for our website, including our downloadable lesson plans and presentations, online video clips on key environmental issues for use in the classroom and our fact sheet library.
Support from charitable trusts makes a huge difference to YPTE's ability to do more to inspire young people to take care of our world. To find out how you can help, please contact YPTE on 01935 315025.
