About Us

Our vision, mission and values

Who we are

We are a young and vibrant children’s organisation with a social justice mission

Founded in 2013, we are an independent Scottish charity, which supports a growing network of partners that inspire children to take part in learning beyond the classroom. We work with schools and other providers to help children overcome barriers to learning and to further their talents and interests.

We have supported over 8,000 children to access enjoyable learning opportunities.

We have partnered with over 1,200 learning destinations across the country.

We have worked with over 150 schools across 12 local authorities and are growing.

We have created a ground-breaking digital platform and learning resources for children and young people.

Our Vision

Every child able to learn and pursue their ambitions to the fullest.

Our Mission

Inspire a love of learning beyond the classroom that enriches children’s lives and transforms their prospects for the future.

Our Values

We believe in the transformative impact learning can have in children’s lives and this is central to how we operate as a charity.

We are creative in our approach and are inspired by ideas with the potential to change our world for the better.

We believe in fairness and fighting for social justice.

We collaborate with others to achieve more than we could on our own.

We aspire to the highest standards and strive to be the best we can.

Our Ambition

By 2023, we will have contributed to significant improvements in children’s learning beyond the classroom, narrowing the achievement gap for children experiencing poverty and disadvantage. 

Over the next 10 years, we will directly help thousands of children across Scotland to find, access and enjoy the best possible opportunities for them to succeed at school and in life. Through our advocacy we will have a positive impact on many more.
