Satchel join forces with UK children’s charity Action Medical Research

Satchel, home to the UK’s #1 learning platform Satchel One, have joined forces with national children’s charity Action Medical Research for their first official charity partnership, which launches in May 2021.

 

Direct support from Satchel will provide funds to support the charity in its mission to save and change children’s lives through medical research, developing treatments, vaccinations and cures. Satchel wanted to support a charity that had a meaningful impact on the lives of young people due to the close ties they have with schools and children.

Satchel has been supplying 1 in 3 UK secondary schools with software that supports students' personal development by providing teachers and schools with tools that provide a holistic view of progression and allow them to support student wellbeing.

 

Themed activity throughout the year will see live webinars hosted by leading children’s health research experts the first of which will shine a spotlight on the charity’s Covid Appeal for Children. Right now, there's a lack of research focusing on children and how the virus and pandemic affect them.

There are still many unanswered questions for parents that need tackling including: Why are some children more vulnerable to COVID-19 than others?  How is the pandemic affecting my child's mental health?

 

Satchel Founder & CEO, Naimish Gohil said, "We're really pleased to be partnering with Action Medical Research on their mission to help defeat the diseases that devastate the lives of sick and disabled babies, children and young people.

After getting to know the charity, everyone here at Satchel was inspired and motivated to support the critical medical research that is required. This is the start of a long term partnership together and I’m excited about the journey ahead”.

 

Action Medical Research has been funding medical breakthroughs which have helped save the lives of countless children and babies for almost 70 years, including developments in the use of ultrasound scanning in pregnancy, supporting cooling therapy for babies starved of oxygen at birth helping to reduce the chance of brain damage and cerebral palsy and thorough testing of the Rubella vaccine.
