CPDSO’s Charity Work – ‘Wrap Up London’
YOU CAN’T LEARN WHEN ITS COLD

As a consortium, the CPD Standards Office works with numerous charities, and supports a variety of education initiatives.

It’s a sad fact that in 2019, there are many children in the UK who do not have a winter coat.

There are Many families in today’s society that don’t always have the means to buy their children winter coats.

Help CPDSO meet the goal of collecting 100 children’s coat by 20th November 2019.

YOU CAN’T LEARN WHEN ITS COLD

When we are cold, our brains struggle to learn and absorb new information, as the body is distracted and in ‘survival mode’.

Instead of positive learning when at school or undertaking homework; when children are cold the brain focuses on keeping them warm. As a result, the ability to learn new skills or knowledge becomes less of a priority and so basic education can suffer, leaving children not only cold but also educationally disadvantaged.

This year, CPD Standards are supporting ‘Wrap Up London’ and are coordinating coat collections, and £ donations, to keep as many children as possible protected and warm this winter.

BRING YOUR UNWANTED CHILDRENS COATS TO OUR NEXT MEMBERS EVENT –

At our November event, we will have a Coat Collection Box, where you can donate unwanted children’s coats or make a donation.

The simple truth is that everyone needs a coat. 

As part of our mission ‘Campaigning for Excellence in Lifelong Learning’ the CPD Standards Office is passionate about enabling educational opportunities, and sustaining learning for EVERYONE in society.

As well as coats, CPDSO is donating money to help support this cause. If you would like to donate now alongside us, please see this link.

Please bring any unwanted coats to our November event, or you can send / deliver them in person to our office address:
