Funding Received: £795,000
Location: North West

UpRising is a UK-wide youth leadership development organisation with a mission to open pathways to power for talented young people from diverse and under-represented backgrounds.

With the funding, 400 young people aged 18-25 will be supported by the existing ‘Fastlaners’ programme through an online programme. Young people will benefit from connecting with a trained business mentor to strengthen their competitiveness in the labour market. Specifically, the project will address inequalities exacerbated as a result of COVID-19. The target cohort are BAME and white disadvantaged young people.
