Elvin Community Support Initiatives

Ark Elvin Academy recognises that there are families who may need support at times during their child’s education, especially with the current cost of living crisis. We have therefore established two community support initiatives.

  1. Ark Elvin Community Support Fund
  2. Ark Elvin Community Kitchen

Ark Elvin Community Support Fund

The aim of the fund is to help families who have difficulties in paying for:

  • School uniform, shoes or sports equipment
  • Materials or equipment necessary for academic studies
  • Essential food supplies
  • IT/Wi-Fi support
  • Other necessary expenses

The decision for the amount and type of support provided is determined on a case-by-case basis. Payments from the fund are discretionary and do not need to be repaid. Payments will be made in the form of vouchers or in some limited cases through Ark Elvin directly purchasing the required items.

Ark Elvin Community Kitchen

Ark Elvin Academy is inviting their local community for dinner this winter. Share a delicious meal, meet new people in a warm, friendly and welcoming environment.

The Community Kitchen will be open every Wednesday 18.00 - 20.00 starting Wednesday 2nd November 2022 and will feature:

  • Delicious freshly cooked three course meal
  • Play board games
  • Homework support for your child

Ark Elvin Academy Community Kitchen is brought to you in association with Sufra and supported by The Raheem Sterling Foundation.
