A BIT ABOUT US
Here at XTND, we see the value in everyone. We want to be a catalyst for positive change, and since our beginnings in 2011, we’ve been driven by the same ideas we were initially founded upon.
One of our primary areas of work is children's welfare when school is closed and includes the provision of subsidised breakfast, after school and holiday clubs. These offer a safe and nurturing environment in which children benefit from healthy food and a range of interesting, fun activities. These services reduce the number of children going without breakfast or being in environments that expose them to unreasonable risk.
We also offer positive change through opportunities for the entire community, leaving a positive legacy for generations to come.
As a registered charity, we are ultimately governed by our board of trustees. Trustees have independent control over, and legal responsibility for, a charity’s management and administration.

The work of the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) was merged with the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) in 2012 to form the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). 'CRB checks' are now known as 'DBS checks'. All of our staff must pass an Enhanced DBS check to enable them to work with children.
