Rethink Ireland award
Educate Together is delighted to announce that it has been awarded a significant cash grant and a place on the prestigious Changemaker Programme by Rethink Ireland (previously Social Innovation Fund Ireland).
The grant is awarded to Educate Together under Rethink’s Education Innovation Fund 2020-2023, which supports organisations tackling educational disadvantage and promoting equity in education.
Educate Together launched the Nurture Schools project in 2020 with support from technology company Salesforce. The project aims to support students with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties in primary and second-level schools to get them back on track and engaged with their education.
