About Us:

Educational Life CIC provides a much loved and valued service for the community. The magazine and website are vehicles to share your positive news and achievements with local people and to bring our community together.

The good news service and magazines are free to everyone and are regularly utilised by local schools, clubs, teams and community organisations. 

Our latest project, Young Reporters is proving to be very popular and is a great way for young people to express their opinions safely and about topics relevant to everyone. They share reports about new films, albums, latest trends and issues that are current and topical. Our Community and School Liaison Advisor, Dave, oversees and coordinates this. The 3-month pilot has been covered by a grant from Newington Big Local but we will need support to keep this going long term.

We need your help so we can continue to offer and even expand our service, please! The 3 ways we are looking for support are:

1. Printing and Distribution: Each magazine costs £4000 to print and distribute. To cover the costs we offer paid advertising but this is a struggle. Following your feedback, people want a printed magazine but we need help to keep this going, please. 

2. Young Reporters: for this project to continue after the 3 month pilot period so that our young people can continue to express themselves and share their reports. The annual cost of this is £8730 for the ad-free double page in the magazine, staffing cost and website maintenance. 

3. An Apprentice: We currently only have 1 member of staff and heavily rely on volunteers and would like to look into taking on an apprentice to manage our website.

Thank you for your support and good luck!

Yours sincerely,

Mrs Claire Turner
