How We Are Supporting Young People Through The Covid-19 Pandemic

Before Covid-19, young people from disadvantaged backgrounds already faced significant barriers to achieving their potential.


The UK's poorest students are now at risk of falling further behind their peers as a result of school closures.


With the support of our brilliant community of business partners, trusts and foundations, we're continuing to deliver programmes where they're needed most.



As children spend extended time away from the classroom, the achievement gap between rich and poor is set to widen.


Now, more than ever, the most disadvantaged young people need our support.


So here's what we're doing.


We've moved our coaching programme online


We are mobilising business volunteers to provide virtual face-to-face coaching to hundreds of young people in schools across the UK. We're troubleshooting with schools so students have access to the technology they need.
