London Schools Pollution Helpdesk
We are a free-to-use service tackling air pollution for all London schools
Poor air quality is a public health crisis and a cause of inequality in our city. It can cause strokes, heart attacks, asthma, dementia and smaller lung capacity in our children. Bold measures introduced by the Mayor of London have already cut the number of state schools with illegal levels of harmful NO2 pollution by 97 per cent - from 455 schools in 2016 to just 14 in 2019 - but more can be done.
Did you know a 20% reduction in NO2 can improve children’s ability to learn by 4 weeks in one year.
The London Schools Pollution Helpdesk is a free-to-use service, funded by the Mayor of London and Impact on Urban Health, to support schools across our city to take action on air pollution.
We're here to help support you by providing:
- one-to-one expert advice on improving air quality in and around your school;
- help to develop a bespoke clean air action plan with prioritised actions;
- support in reducing traffic outside your school gate;
- resources to support teaching air quality in the curriculum;
- practical, easy-to-follow resources to help you tackle poor air quality in and around your school;
- direction towards funding streams and even help you write and complete applications.
We're here to help you overcome barriers to clean air for your school, in any way we can.
