Google Analytics
Having as effective a website as possible really matters to us as a small charity. That is why we, like many other organisations, use Google Analytics to help us understand how you use the site so that we can improve your experience. These cookies track things such as how long you spend on the site and the pages that you visit because by knowing this we can see which content is most engaging which helps us in planning future work.

We use Facebook to communicate with people interested in our work through both unpaid posts and paid advertising to recruit more volunteer tutors. We want our limited advertising budget to have maximum effect so use cookies to measure the effectiveness of any paid campaign on Facebook. Cookies also enable us to target or exclude those who have visited our website.
