What is a Charity?

Overview

Pupils learn about the reasons why charities are created. They will be introduced to the main features of a charity and have the opportunity to research the work of a charity of their choice. They will consolidate their learning by designing a charity of their own, which takes into account the charity’s purpose, promotion, actions and funding.
