Go-Givers aspires to give children of primary age a foundational understanding of how people care for each other and for the wider world, in the expectation that they will, in the long term, play an active role in the caring society.
Go-Givers extends the SEAL and Healthy Schools programmes into the wider context of society. It addresses many of the requirements of the DCSF's 'Guidance to Promote Community Cohesion' and deals with important issues raised in the UNICEF Commission on the Rights of the Child

This volunteering module offers four lesson plans which are ideal for key stage 4 citizenship lessons.
These resources form part of a suite of materials that link secondary curriculum subjects with careers education AND support the aims of the national curriculum
As well as their unique contributions to young people’s development, there are many links between the content of the Citizenship programme of study and learning through Careers

Although not recommended, the reality in many schools is that Citizenship education is delivered through other subjects.
