TURN Education is proud to be supported by a number of Grant awarding bodies whose financial contributions allow us to run projects and activities for the most vulnerable and at risk families.

For the whole of this year, 2020, TURN is proud to be supported by the staff of Tean Co-operative Food Store and the Co-op Local Community Fund. Not only are the staff at Tean Co-operative volunteering and fundraising for TURN but their member customers are able to nominate TURN to receive 1% of the sales value of Co-operative branded products if you aren’t already a Co-op member its so simple to do, please feel free to follow this link,and don’t forget to choose TURN as your benefactor. Your support will not only allow us to continue to fund our connecting families sessions but will also help us create a relaxing social space at TURN for those in need of somewhere to meet and be refreshed. 


TURN are currently a “blue coin” choice at Tesco Uttoxeter and Tesco Express Uttoxeter. Via the support of their bags for help scheme we hope to purchase a trailer so that we can reach out to the most vulnerable and isolated within our community. Taking TURN on tour would be an amazing opportunity for us to extend the work we do and we are immensely grateful to all those who have so far donated their coins to us.

We were delighted to be given a cheque by Waitrose Uttoxeter to help purchase some of the resources for our Connecting Families Project.

Our recent crowdfunder has raised much needed funds for a new exciting project working with young people and their families to make positive changes for their future education and well being.

Young people regularly help at the rehoming days and it is another fantastic opportunity for our care farm work to take on real purpose and meaning in our own community.
