The Big Help Out is a nationwide weekend of volunteering and community action from Friday 7th – Sunday 9th June 2024. It aims to: raise awareness of the benefits of volunteering for individuals, communities and good causes; and provide opportunities for people to experience volunteering and make a difference in their community.  

Learn more about volunteering with Action Tutoring to make a difference to the lives of disadvantaged young people

We need your help to fight education inequality. At Action Tutoring, we believe in the power of tutoring. We’re dedicated to ensuring more disadvantaged students receive the support they need to reach their full academic potential and achieve important pass grades in English and maths. But we cannot do it without you.

We are looking for volunteers to support pupils from low-income backgrounds in English or maths. Education in this country isn’t fair. If you are from a poorer socio-economic background, you’re less likely to pass your SATs or GCSEs, limiting future opportunities. By volunteering for just one hour a week on one of our 10-week programmes, you will support children to build their confidence and help ensure they leave school with the grades needed to build a bright future, as well as developing your own skills. Tutoring sessions happen both online and in-person and you can choose a one-hour slot from Monday – Friday (term time only). Training and tutor resources are provided.

To find out more, join Action Tutoring’s free 30-minute online information session on Friday 7th June from 12.30 – 13.00. The first 15 minutes will be a presentation about why Action Tutoring exists and what volunteering with us entails. In the second 15 minutes, you’ll have the opportunity to talk with one of our friendly staff members and any questions you may have.

To attend, please sign up with your preferred email on Eventbrite. That way, we’ll be able to send you an email with the zoom details, next steps, and a recording of the presentation if you can’t make it on the day:
