Nathalie Richards founded EduKit to help schools to ensure ALL students could access life-changing support in order to achieve their potential.
Now, 7 years on, over 150,000 students have taken EduKit Insight surveys and they have connected thousands of schools with impactful youth interventions via the free EduKitConnect service. And in the summer of 2020 in the midst of the pandemic, they worked with schools to launch a powerful Wellbeing mobile app to ensure that all children would have critical mental health and wellbeing support at their fingertips.
Nathalie has worked with young people for many years. After being bullied as a teenager, Nathalie decided she wanted no child to feel alone in dealing with a problem at home or School. She set up her social enterprise, EduKit, in 2014. Since then, she has enabled thousands of students to seek help and improve their mental health through EduKit's online student wellbeing surveys and, more recently, the EduKit mobile app.
Nathalie is an experienced interviewee and speaker. She chaired the London Knife Crime Conference organised by London Mayor Sadiq Khan, sits on the Board of Virgin Unite and has mentored children and young people with ‘100 Black Men of London' and 'Young Enterprise.'
