3B Education was set up to deliver services at a fair price, not to make huge profits. We try to re-invest funds where possible into outreach work or to causes that are closely related to the fields we work within.
Our consultancy work in both state and private sector schools, support for privately funding families, plus our psychotherapy and coaching work with adult clients allows us to run Arun Court as a non-profit organisation.
In addition, we also support various other charitable concerns:
Moon Bears - These animals first inspired our company name when we started out 5 years ago working with younger students. We currently sponsor two such bears, both of whom have suffered trauma and have high anxiety needs themselves. Ginny via 'Born Free' and Kevin via 'Animals Asia'. Students we are working with benefit from regular updates.
Child Sponsorship - The company sponsors three children, one in Senegal, one in India and another in Zambia. As a company we have made further direct donations to world vision in order to further support the work being carried out in these two communities. Students working in our services again benefit from cultural links and regular updates.
We have so far got the following organised, but would love to do more - contact us if you have events where we could help
1. We will be returning to Birtley Court nursing home again this year to make decorations with the residents (we loved it last year and so did they!)
2. We are hoping that our young people will get the opportunity to support the local library and fill some of the gaps they are struggling to fill. One of our staff members is a qualified and experienced librarian.
3. We are hoping to build a link and environmental study with a school in beautiful Norway
4. Our 'Location A' support group will be helping adults who have mental health needs, or are part of a family with a member who has mental health needs, meeting in Farnham, Aldershot and surrounding areas
5. Adam is already booked in to visit several schools and nursing homes - we are always happy to visit more!
Wednesday 10th October
In Aid of OCD UK students held a bake sale which raised £200.
To celebrate World Mental Health Awareness Day 3 students accompanied by Mr Halford, Bev and James went into Guildford and handed out roses and positive message cards to raise awareness and to make a Random Act of Kindness.
Jack and Lily May have started a new community club as of October called 'Christmas Club'
11:15 - 12:15 local adults are invited to come along for crafts and cake
15:30 - 16:30 Jack and Lily-May will be teaching local youngsters (aged 3 and up) different craft activities with the help of qualified staff. Come along and learn to decoupage, make cards and sew! Both sessions are FREE to Bramley residents.
As part of our community walks so far this academic year students at A.C have picked up TWO carrier bags full of paper and tin waste. They have also collected a whole shoe box full of broken glass from the park! We have also carried out a dog poo survey and were really saddened by the results! Follow our example and always pick up your dog's poo please!
