“We inspire young people living with significant challenges to achieve their full potential” 


Based in East London, we work specifically with young people aged typically between 13 and 19 that are living with major challenges and who are at risk of failing to achieve their potential, namely: 

Transitioning Hospital Patients
Young Carers
School Pupils at Risk

We run a three-year programme focused on the needs and aspirations of each group but specially designed to reach three outcomes that are improving their resilience, developing soft skills and life tools such as public speaking abilities and critical thinking and broadening their horizon of work. As well as workshops focusing on practical training and weekly drop-in sessions that provide on-going emotional support, our beneficiaries have access to a range of inspirational people, events and businesses.

Over time, we have built up a solid network of relationships with high profile people from business, sport, the arts, academia and government, offering the charity a wealth of options to use in its projects.
