Education 4 Everyone

As part of Small Charity Week 2023, Roots HR CIC offered   the opportunity to apply for free HR support. As part of our social impact, funded by our trading surpluses we offered up to 40 hours of free HR Consultancy to be shared amongst small charities and other social sector organisations.

Education 4 Everyone applied for the free HR support and were successful in their application!

Education 4 Everyone works to ensure that every child has access to an education and makes the most of the educational opportunities they receive.

The charity’s objectives are:

  • to help to provide universal education around the world;
  • to teach lifelong transferable skills to children and young people with additional needs who are unable to learn them in formal education settings; and
  • to assist in the rehabilitation of military veterans and active service personnel who have experienced life changing physical injuries and/or mental illness.

With the free HR Consultancy, Education 4 Everyone worked with Ann Young, Lead Consultant on reviewing and updating a Staff Handbook and developing and implementing a fit for purpose appraisal process for the staff team.

Chair of Education 4 Everyone, Dean Brockway, stated that the support from Roots HR would significantly improve people management within the organisation as they were now benefiting from a robust staff appraisal process. Dean advised that without the free HR Consultancy provided by Roots HR, Education 4 Everyone would have been reliant on any guidance they could have found free of charge on the internet.

Dean would actively encourage other more than profit organisations within the social sector to engage with free HR support provided by Roots HR, stating that it is, “Very informative and time saving”.

Roots HR offers a range of other FREE resources including:

Roots HR’s CEO and Lead Consultant, Alison Smith, states, “Roots HR believes that every social sector employer should have access to professional advice in respect of its workforce.

Roots HR has offered high quality people management and employment law advice, tailored to the social sector since inception in 2009.
