Introducing TLG…

Transforming Lives for Good (TLG) is a national charity that helps churches to bring hope and a future for struggling children. That means getting alongside struggling children, providing practical support in and out of school and connecting with home to bring hope and a future.

All over the UK, children are struggling in school for all kinds of reasons and many families are suffering without hope. Nationally, the latest statistics show that:

 Children living in poverty are 4 times more likely to get a permanent exclusion from school

 More than two thirds of the current prison population were excluded from school

 One in six 16-24 year old ’NEETs’ (those not in Education, Employment or Training) die within ten years of falling out of the system

 1.5 million children are entitled to free school meals in the UK

But there is hope.

It comes through the local church making a real difference in their community. TLG is passionate about bringing a practical approach that goes way beyond education and works to build strong connections between local churches, families and schools. At TLG, we have a big vision to make the difference in as many children and families lives as possible. We are transforming lives for good!
