Go Givers is a free, web-based, primary resource for PSHE and Citizenship developed by the Citizenship Foundation through Cabinet Office funding. The many free teaching and learning resources develop personal and social responsibility, mutual respect and concern for the world we live in by educating children to care for their family and friends and about the issues affecting local, national and global communities.
Go-Givers is funded by the Office of the Third Sector in the Cabinet Office.
