Coronavirus (Covid-19) statement:

Following the Government’s announcements and the continually evolving situation with Covid-19 we would like to update you on developments with the National Saturday Club programme. 

During these uncertain times, we will ensure that the National Saturday Club’s members and partners are fully supported and informed of programme developments over the coming weeks and months. The Saturday Club Trust team will be working from home but remain fully contactable via email and telephone. If you telephone the office landlines you will be diverted to individual staff members’ mobile numbers. 

Our primary consideration is the health and welfare of everyone in the network. Accordingly, we are currently reviewing the whole programme for this academic year with the understanding that many, or all, Saturday Clubs will not be running as usual. We are in the process of developing new digital frameworks and virtual activities and are endeavouring to be agile and creative in our response, to ensure that the young people continue to benefit from being a part of the National Saturday Club programme throughout this academic year.

On a personal note, I would like to thank you for your ongoing support and engagement with the programme as we all navigate this challenging time. The Saturday Club Trust, in collaboration with our host institutions and industry partners, will continue to innovate and to explore new ways of enabling young people across the country to develop their skills and study the subjects they love for free. 

With best wishes,

Lucy Kennedy

CEO, Saturday Club Trust and The Sorrell Foundation
