Our TP Tokens scheme lets you decide how our charitable donations are allocated.
Every time you work ten days through Teaching Personnel you will receive an electronic TP Token by email. You can donate each TP Token to one of our five chosen charity pots. It’s up to you which charities you wish to support.
Our chosen charities for 2023
Kids against Plastic
A charity setup by kids, for kids.
Amy and Ella Meek are the teenage founders of the environmental charity Kids Against Plastic. Since founding their youth-led organisation back in 2016, the girls have worked hard to inspire kids and adults alike to take action to reduce their use of single-use plastics – or become ‘Plastic Clever’ as they call it. Their Plastic Clever scheme has since been adopted by over 1300 schools, as well as by cafes, businesses, councils and festivals around the UK.
Is your school a Plastic Clever School?

War Child UK is the only specialist charity for children affected by conflict. For 30 years, we’ve been driven by a single goal – for no child’s life to be torn apart by war.
We aim to reach children as early as possible when conflict breaks out and stay to support them through their recovery – keeping them safe, helping them learn and cope with their experiences, and equipping them with skills for the future.
Whether it’s ensuring Iraqi children receive an education, providing psychological support to children who have been traumatised by conflict in Ukraine, or finding lost vulnerable children in Afghanistan. We understand children’s needs, respect their rights and put them at the centre of everything we do.
At War Child, we will never give up on children affected by conflictWar Child
At the end of the year Teaching Personnel will donate money to each charity based on the number of TP Tokens each charity has in their pot. The more TP Tokens in a charity’s pot, the bigger the donation.
