SMSC resources

Schools measure children by their academic achievement. However, we need to remember that qualities such as empathy, compassion and fair-mindedness are just as important.



We have mobilised more than 300,000 young people to take social action.

We've helped 80% of secondary schools nurture active citizens.


We are the UK's leader in the field of public legal information (PLE) for young people. PLE gives young people the knowledge, skills and confidence to tackle everyday problems.




We believe it is vital young people get to grips with key financial terms during their school life. Our programmes and conferences enable finance professionals from the most reputable companies to help bring this education to life.



Fundraise for us

Help us fight for the role of citizenship education in educating and preparing young people for life beyond the school gates. Fundraise for us and help us champion a society with greater equality and social cohesion.
