Super excited to share some brilliant news!

Tales Toolkit are in the final year of a grant scheme under the Mercers’ Company’s Early Years Special Initiative to work with London boroughs. This means you could have Tales Toolkit in your school at a brilliantly reduced price!

The Mercers’ Company

Mercers & Golsmith Logos

The Mercers’ Company is a livery company focused on being a philanthropic force for good. Each year they help around 180 charities with the aim to create positive change across generations, giving those they help the chance to live a fulfilling life now and in the future.

We are working with other organisations funded under this initiative such as, the Literacy Trust, Chickenshed, and many more.

What does this mean?

In a nutshell – London schools can get our Tales Toolkit programme of online training and resources at a heavily subsidised price:

Tales Toolkit has already helped so many children with their storytelling skills but also with their social skills, confidence, imagination and literacy and now we can reach even more children.


Over the last two years we have welcomed 60+ London schools under the Mercers Special Initiative; we have A FEW SPOTS LEFT in this third a final year, which we will be allocating on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED basis.

We are working with Goldsmiths University of London to assess the impact of Tales Toolkit in our Mercers-funded London schools.

The results so far have been brilliant!
