Our Partners


50 Things To Do has been created by the people at the St Edmund's Nursery School in Bradford, inspired by years of working with parents and delivering outstanding provision to young children.

We worked closely with a huge range of people in our area, ranging from the families and children that we serve, to education experts and special needs experts in nursery schools, primary schools, in our local authority area and beyond.

Our mission is to change the way we support the next generation.

As a social impact accelerator, we back big ideas that help young people to thrive in life not just in exams.

At Big Change, we invest in big ideas that offer alternative ways of supporting young people. We do this by finding, incubating, and connecting powerful ideas to the people and support that can make change a reality.

We are constantly learning from our projects and community, so we can uncover the insights that will lead our team and our peers to create big change, together.

The Bradford Opportunity Area (BOA) was launched by the government in 2017 with an aim to understand and tackle the various challenges and barriers children and young people faced in the district.

The BOA has been implementing a wide range of interventions, based on evidence and best practice, to help change the life course of these children and young people for the better.
The Opportunity Area programme will end following the 2021/ 22 academic year. During this final year, the Department for Education and key partners will be working together to ensure that the excellent work since the start of the programme will continue and have a lasting, positive effect on the area and young people who live in Bradford.
