A children's charity is getting a �50,000 cheque on Monday.
School-Home Support which befriends around 5,000 children with behavioural, emotional and practical difficulties in Tower Hamlets, Hackney and Southwark will be presented with the cheque from HSBC bank's Learning Trust at Langdon Park School in Poplar. The presentation will mark 25 years of the charity's work.
The money will be used to continue the charity's work. Over 30 support workers befriend around 5,000 children across 40 of the most challenging schools.
The charity's chief executive Jan Tallis said: "In an average classroom one child will the main carer for a dependent relative, six will have been exposed to substance misuse, seven will have experienced violence and eight will live in poverty. It is these young people who are most at risk of joining the 935,000 of 16-24 year olds who are not in education, training or employment in the future."
