In the world of education, feeling safe and supported is vital for young people to learn at their best. That’s where the Grace Foundation steps in, with the work of the Ethos Team. The team is made up of Christians who work with the school to develop character and values, build healthy relationships, and help young people understand Christian perspectives. They’ve set up special rooms called Ethos Rooms in Partner Schools, but these aren’t just any rooms—they’re safe havens where students can find support when they need it most.

“The Ethos room is a place we can go and be ourselves, make friends, and speak to someone if you are on your own.”

Whether it’s dealing with stress, family issues, or just needing someone to talk to, the Foundation’s team is there to lend a caring ear and help find solutions. From this room, the Ethos Team delivers deep work like one-to-one mentoring and group interventions. The impact of the Ethos Teams is pretty remarkable. Young people who’ve faced challenges find comfort and hope in the Ethos Room. They no longer feel isolated and uncertain but instead feel empowered to face the future with confidence. Plus, the Foundation ensures that everyone has access to basic needs like food or clothing, so young people can focus on their work without worrying about hunger.

“I know that I will always be fed at lunchtimes… I am now not worried about the price of food.”

But it’s not just about fixing problems—it’s also about building resilience and well-being. In the Ethos Room, students learn practical skills to manage stress and handle tough situations. They discover ways to stay calm and centred, even when things feel overwhelming.

“I no longer compare myself to others and feel confident in my own skin. Coming off social media before bed, getting at least 7 hours sleep, and drinking water has helped me feel fresher!”

And it’s not all serious stuff either. They also organize social activities where they can connect and unwind, making the school environment feel more welcoming and supportive.

“Drop In has improved my experience of school this term because I can socialize with more people.”

In the summer of 2023, Popular British Radio & TV Host Roman Kemp visited one of our Partner Schools to see the work of the Ethos Team in action. Grace Foundation was featured as part of a BBC Documentary called ‘Roman Kemp: The Fight for Young Lives’ as an exemplary example of well-being support in schools. Here’s what Roman said about his experience with the school:

‘What your school does and offers is outstanding. I really can see how even though it is not your responsibility, you have taken it on and go above and beyond to support your students and their families. Thank you for allowing me to see an insight into what you do and meeting your amazing students.’

Thanks to the Grace Foundation, young people in Partner Schools have a safe space to turn to when life gets challenging. They learn valuable skills, find support, and create meaningful connections along the way. It’s all about making the school community a place where everyone feels valued and supported, no matter what life throws their way.
