Charities and foundations we support.
Following the stabbing of a friend's 17 year old younger brother, Daniel Snell, the founder of Arrival Education, decided to do something to help youngsters build exciting futures.
After four years of on the ground experience working with young people and schools Arrival Education have developed a series of ideas and programmes which provide huge value for employers, schools and young people. But at the heart of everything they do as an organisation is their mission: to stop young people killing each other".
Arrival Education believe that there is a real need to help young people develop not only 'key skills', but also what we call 'Success Skills': the fundamental skills that people need to create success for themselves, for the economy and for society.
"iProfile are delighted to support Arrival's "Success for Life" programme as it allows us with the unique opportunity to engage with the youth of today and help them become the professionals of tomorrow."

Foundation for Paediatric Osteopathy
The Foundation for Paediatric Osteopathy, formerly known as the Osteopathic Centre for Children, seeks to ensure that paediatric osteopathy - a gentle, efficient therapy - is established as the first recourse for parents and carers concerned for their child's health. They accomplish this by raising awareness of paediatric osteopathy, participating in research, training paediatric osteopaths and offering over 30,000 free treatments to babies, children and pregnant and post-partum women each year. They receive no Government funding, and are entirely reliant upon the generosity of the public to fund their services.
This foundation was brought to our attention by one of our employees. They greatly helped her sister to overcome a condition called glue ear (which affects the hearing, therefore impacts the child's learning and speech). The Foundation greatly helped her overcome her condition and improve her life. It is a charity which is close to the heart of our employees.
Our employees supported this initiative and helped raise money by running the St Albans (13.2k) half marathon. Both Darren and Russell completed the marathon successfully.
Well done guys!
