Why we exist
In the UK today, the income of the family you are born into is still the strongest indicator of where you will end up. Young people from low-income backgrounds are likely to do well at school, less likely to progress to higher education and less likely to enter secure and fulfilling employment.
These inequalities are laid bare when a young person turns 16. The decisions they make at this critical juncture have consequences that last a lifetime. Too many are deprived of the guidance and networks they need to make informed decisions about their future.
