Why we matter

We don’t believe that your race, ethnicity or background should limit what you can achieve in life.

Our work directly addresses some of the key challenges that hold people back.

Disadvantage starts early

We believe all young people should receive the education, training and support they need to reach their potential.  Too many young people start at a disadvantage.

Getting into employment is harder for some groups than others

We believe everyone should have the opportunity to enter the career of their choice based on their skills and abilities, not their background.

Career progression is not equal

We believe that everyone should be able to progress in their career based on their skills and performance, not limited by factors unrelated to their work.

This is why we strive everyday to impact the lives of disadvantaged young people through our work with schools, universities and communities. This is why we matter.
