Over the last decade, despite an overall increase in the education budget, spending per pupil in the UK has fallen by as much as 8% in the past decade. Head teachers are warning of a £ 5.7 billion funding shortfall in 2019-2020. This is affecting schools' ability to offer activities to students that will make them well-rounded adults and has intensified a number of social problems, including screen-addiction, social isolation and childhood obesity. We, at LetsLocalise, believe we have found an ingenious way of connecting schools to the fountain of goodwill that, historically, has proved challenging for headteachers to tap into. We also believe that, regardless of the political complexion of UK governments in the next decade or so, the financial constraints on state schools will not ease substantially. Our proposal is an imaginative means of narrowing the needs gap without increasing the burden on the taxpayer. We believe that our communities are the key to helping children succeed. By bringing schools and their surrounding communities together we can help that goodwill flow into schools, bringing skills, resource and enthusiasm into the lives of our country's children. At the same time this brings valuable purpose and fulfilment to those in the wider community, be they parents, businesses or those who just want to contribute.
