Background Information

The Homework Club was set up by Belinda Slade in 2002. Belinda is a trained and experienced special needs teacher who set up The Homework Club in 2002 from home. It soon grew in size and demand and moved from home to a church venue. There are now 4 Homework Clubs in operation, in the Cashmere area, offering before and after school care and a holiday programme for 2 weeks in every school holiday.

Sara is the manager and is a trained primary school teacher.
