Luton-born professional boxer Jordan Reynolds, and Joan Bailey MBE, Director and CEO of the Safer Luton Partnership.
“Given the uncertainty of recent years, we know that many there are many in our communities that continue to miss out due to the impact of poverty,” said Jennie White, chief executive of Level Trust.
“Level Trust marked ten years since we were formed recently. With even more families struggling, we remain committed to our charity’s mission of supporting those that are vulnerable and disadvantaged.”
She added: “Our annual conference is an opportunity to discuss issues impacting young people and their families. If you have not already done so, please do make sure you book your place.”
Altaf Hussain, chair of Level Trust, and the Principal and CEO of Luton Sixth Form College, added: “We are pleased to once again bring together educators from all over the region for our annual conference as we discuss ways to continue to provide the best opportunities and support for our children and young people so that they can thrive.
“We are all committed to ensuring that every child, regardless of background and circumstances, receives the support that they need.”
The conference is sponsored by the Chiltern Teaching School Hub and will be presented by Sufian Sadiq, the director of teaching school.
“The cost-of-living crisis continues to adversely impact families in Bedfordshire,” said Sufian, who is also a trustee for Level Trust.
“We felt it was imperative that, as a trust and teaching school, we continue our long-standing support for this important event to raise awareness and better equip schools and senior leaders in dealing with increased levels of poverty.”
Dame Rachel de Souza DBE, the Children’s Commissioner for England, headlined the event last year.
