CHICKS Charity

At Horizon Teachers, we understand the importance of enhancing children’s education and nurturing their growth and development, particularly those who are disadvantaged.

We are proud to be supporting CHICKS charity, which provides free, week-long respite breaks in Devon, Cornwall or Derbyshire to disadvantaged children aged 8-15 across the UK.

CHICKS support children from a variety of disadvantaged backgrounds, including children who act as young carers, live in poverty, are subjected to abuse and much more.

With CHICKS charity, we send a disadvantaged child from a London school on a CHICKS break. This break gives them the opportunity to increase their confidence, benefit from positive experiences and develop valuable social skills.

You can act as a referral agent by referring any child that you think could benefit from a CHICKS break. As CHICKS is ASDAN accredited, children attending CHICKS during term-time will still be marked as present on their school register under Category B.
