3.6 million children

live in poverty in the UK today

They are unlikely to achieve the same success as their wealthier peers.

Statistics suggest they will get lower GCSE grades, earn less, and die younger.

We are Teach First and we believe that this can change.

One great teacher can change a child's life

We find, train and support people to become brilliant teachers, inspiring the young people who need them the most

One great teacher

One million pupils

living in low-income communities across England and Wales have been supported by a Teach First teacher
