Nearly 10,000 young people have benefitted from the help of Harrow School's Shaftesbury Enterprise which, together with its partners, has run a number of schemes to lessen the impact of the pandemic.
The work of Harrow School's public benefit arm is detailed in the Shaftesbury Enterprise Impact Report 2020-21 which has just been published.
Tim Dalton, Director of Shaftesbury Enterprise, said: "The past year has been a challenging one for all sectors, but it has been even more challenging for some of the most vulnerable young people in our community whose acute needs were exacerbated by the pandemic. Harrow is immensely proud of the programme that we, in collaboration with our partners, have been able to implement through Shaftesbury Enterprise."
Thousands of young people in our neighbouring communities have been helped to survive the impact of the pandemic through the provision of nourishing meals where needed, help in bridging the digital divide so that they could access online lessons, access to bespoke mental health support, free use of the School’s facilities over the holidays, and academic enrichment that has touched the lives of nearly 10,000 young people over the course of the last year.
