Rotary Life Education

Life Education is a national charity which works with local operating groups (mainly charitable trusts) in communities throughout much of the UK. Life Education recently became part of Coram, the oldest children’s charity in the UK; check www.lifeeducation.org.uk and www.coram.org.uk for more background information. Most of the 40 local operating groups in the UK are independent charities sponsored by local Rotary Clubs; in West London for 10 years now, the Rotary Clubs of Chelsea, Chiswick & Brentford, Fulham, Hammersmith, Kensington and Paddington have sponsored life education. Two mobile classrooms tour primary schools in an increasing number of boroughs and our own specially-trained educators (with the help of Harold the giraffe) teach children how to make healthy choices in their lives - covering everything from food and drink through to drugs and encouraging children to stick up for themselves and not just follow the pack if they don’t want to. Life Education West London needs help from more Rotary clubs to help it expand into new areas, and Coram Life Education needs help too, in order to set up new groups to cover other parts of London. For more information please contact us: we will be happy to come to a Rotary Club meeting and explain more, and answer questions.
