Our Story

Stretch a Nickel's vision and values

Our charity was set up to address unmet needs in local communities. We believe that generous giving goes a lot further than you think. SAN connects with people wanting to see those who face disadvantage prosper and grow.  We invest our resources in new ways of working together and so multiply the outcomes.

Thanks to the willingness of schools, agencies and local people to try different ways of doing things, SAN has piloted a number of successful and replicable learning projects. Click here for details about our innovative schemes to support primary school pupils from vulnerable households.
