“Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.”– William James.


Help Us Make A Difference

FAST is already established in many locations throughout the UK but there are always new schools looking to run the programme. All these schools need support from sponsors to run, develop and sustain the programme. You can sponsor FAST in several different ways:

 •  Partnership with FAST UK to run several programmes in a specific area

•  Sponsor an individual programme direct with the school – perhaps a school in      your area or maybe even your old school

•  Support an existing FAST school with funding needs for future cycles

•  Sponsor resources – meals or hampers

•  Sponsor a school community FASTWORKS group

•  Volunteer at a school near you!

 Take Action 

Middlesex University is dedicated to helping children and their families thrive through the FAST programme. If you want to play a part in supporting positive change in the lives of children and their parents then contact us now and find out how you can get involved at
