Making a difference to society
The Make a Difference Challenge is a child-led social action programme that empowers some of our youngest citizens. It provides them with an opportunity to identify and research a social or environmental issue that they feel passionate about, then make a difference to it through awareness-raising, fundraising or taking practical action. Join more than 880 school registrations and 26,000 children who have already taken part.
The Make a Difference Challenge programme uses Belle Wallace’s TASC (Thinking Actively in a Social Context) Wheel which provides an excellent context for meaningful SMSC learning, pupil voice and character development.
The project enables primary aged children to gain a real understanding of the issues communities face, and take the lead in making a difference to them. They learn to empathise with those who are disadvantaged, recognise the role of government, voluntary groups and charitable organisations and consider the part they can play in bringing about positive change.
