UpRising is a national youth leadership development organisation. We are recognised at Government-level as a pioneering charity championing the critical issues surrounding diversity, social mobility and equality.
Our important work provides routes to leadership and employment for 16-25 year olds who have talent, but lack opportunity. The mission is to break the cycle of unrepresentative power in the UK, by developing new, community-minded and socially-conscious leaders; so that our future decision-makers truly represent our diverse communities.
UpRising Leadership work is delivered through a number of different programmes, these include:
Leadership and Environmental Leadership: A nine month part-time programme for 18-25 year olds. It is designed to give young people the knowledge, networks, skills, and confidence to fulfill their leadership potential. Participants have a range of learning sessions followed by experiential leadership training and mentoring.
Fastlaners: Our eight day employability programme for 18 – 25 year olds. It is designed to build on existing experience or qualifications to kick start young people’s careers. The programme equips participants with the soft skills and knowledge needed to improve their job prospects in order to find meaningful employment.
Find Your Power: Targeted at 16 – 18 year olds as a five-week introduction to leadership and social action; designed to inspire young people to stand up for what they believe in and make an impact in their local community. Young people gain soft skills and confidence to pursue their dreams.https://www.uprising.org.uk/

Employers play a key role in #socialmobility outcomes for many.
They determine where they set up their business, the types of job roles they create, and how and who they recruit; the income set by employers impacts living standards, pension contributions, as well as spending power in their local economy; they also play an important role in the health and wellbeing of employees.
However, with each part of the UK having an individual identity, history and economy, impacting its local population and their opportunities, the challenges to social mobility, and the solutions, may differ from region to region.
That’s where we think the use of our new #Data Explorer tool can help – join us at this event on 7 June at 12pm for employers to find out how you can utilise our new tool to understand your workforce distribution; provide insight for outreach activity and hiring activity; and to serve and support regional communities.
