Schools at Our Heart


At the heart of what we do

With the Foundation’s primary focus on supporting families and specifically young children, schools are at the heart of what we do.

We understand how important schools are to the children who attend them, as well as the communities they serve.

Whether you’re a school that wants to join in with our #RedforRuth fundraising activities or you’re a teacher looking for information on our pre-bereavement services, we will do whatever we can to make your support and engagement educational, enjoyable, and fulfilling for students and teachers alike.
