upReach are an award winning national charity that work in close partnership with employers and universities.
We support over 1,500 disadvantaged students from across the UK to realise their potential. We help employers attract more applications from high calibre students from less-advantaged backgrounds through opportunities such as insight days, mentoring and work experience. Our team of Programme Coordinators provide a highly personalised programme of support to each undergraduate student (who are known as “upReach Associates”). Through successful partnerships with 40 top employers and universities, we offer Associates access to a comprehensive range of opportunities and activities to broaden their horizons, understand career pathways and develop the skills, networks and experiences needed for career success. We collaborate closely with other charities in our sector to maximise our joint impact. From working with 400 Associates in 2015, in 2022 we aim to support 2,500, while maintaining our personalised approach and expanding the support offered. In October 2019, upReach won the Charity of the Year Award (income < £1m) in the prestigious Charity Times Awards.https://upreach.org.uk/
