Our Impact

Rekindle’s long term, transformative approach drives improvement in the key areas vital to the success of the young person.

Joy in Education

Our young people identified a lack of happiness in schools as a major issue. We commissioned a 17-year-old to research whether this lack of happiness was a general trend in the education system, and if so, what effect it had on students. In her research, she found that most people found their schooling experience to be “soulless” and “joyless”. She also found that this curbed their creativity, intelligence and full sense of self.

By age 11, fewer than half of pupils entitled to free school meals reach the standard expected for reading, writing and Mathematics.

Recent studies have shown that children in the UK rank near the bottom of 24 European countries in terms of childhood happiness.

The better off are still 80% more likely to make it into professional jobs than those from working-class backgrounds.

Critical Thinkers

We believe that engaging young people with a critically thinking mindset is crucial for them to successfully navigate a challenging and changing world. 

Word on the street

His self confidence has grown and he has at last seen the light about Budgeting, something I have been trying to teach him at home. But following the Sessions on Budgeting at Rekindle he has now grasped the concept.

He really enjoyed the Photography work in the Sessions, I hope that he continues to attend Rekindle. It is important to me that he has productive activities to engage with outside of school.
