Each year Loomis Sayles sets aside a portion of our pre-tax income to fund charitable giving targeted at improving the education and health of children and families. We support the following organisations:

School-Home Support
School-Home Support (SHS) believes that ALL children and young people deserve the opportunity to make the most of the education available to them. Education is the key to social mobility, therefore supporting a child’s education is one of the most effective ways of breaking the cycle of disadvantage. They help both vulnerable children who face barriers to learning and their families to ensure that they have the support they need at home to succeed at school.  Their work addresses issues such as:

  • Poverty (including food poverty)
  • Domestic violence
  • Poor housing
  • Parents with poor mental health
  • Low family aspirations
  • Parental disengagement from the education system

Disadvantaged children and young people miss school and lose out on the education available to them.  They grow up lacking the basic skills they need to lead secure adult lives.  School Home Supports vision is to ensure children are in school and not on the streets, that they reach their full potential and have the skills they need to progress into training and employment.

The Honeypot Children’s Charity
The Honeypot Children’s Charity’s vision is for every child to make the most of their one chance at childhood.

Honeypot are the only charity in the UK to provide respite breaks and on-going outreach support to young careers and vulnerable children from the ages of 5 to 12. We give young careers a break from demanding and stressful responsibilities at home and provide a safe, nurturing environment where children at risk can develop their full potential.

They currently provide respite breaks to approximately 1,500 children across their two respite homes; Honeypot House in the New Forest and Honeypot Pen y Bryn, in mid-Wales. These two Houses are set in several acres of beautiful countryside and offer a place for children to play freely and make friends.
