Teachers Together Supports Happy Days Children Charity

Updated: Apr 8, 2021

My driving ambition when I left the security of full-time employment to launch Teachers Together was to create a company, I can be proud of. Recruitment agencies have a shared responsibility with schools and educators to help the next generation and I wanted to use the experience I have gained from my 15 years in the sector to do things in a more transparent and supportive way.

It was equally important to me that Teachers Together serves as a platform to support our wider community - not just our members and partners - and since Christmas is all about traditions, I was keen to start an annual tradition of our own and researched local charities we could get behind. Given the line of work we are in, I wanted to find one which focuses on children and young adults.

I am pleased to confirm that Teachers Together has teamed up with Happy Days Children Charity, an organisation based in Hitchin providing much-needed support to children with life-limiting illnesses, mental and physical disabilities, those who had suffered abuse and neglect, bereaved children, and young carers.

Christmas can be a wonderful time of year, but for many children and families coping with difficulties in their lives, it can increase feelings of loneliness and despair which can become overwhelming. And this year, circumstances with the coronavirus pandemic have made things even more difficult for struggling parents.
