UpRising is a national youth leadership development organisation. They are recognised at Government-level as a pioneering charity championing the critical issues surrounding diversity, social mobility and equality.
Their 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 future decision-makers truly represent the UK’s diverse communities.
They want to change the face of power in this country – quite literally.
Their programmes run in London, Bedfordshire and Luton, West Midlands, Cardiff City Region and Greater Manchester. They have also worked in Merseyside, Tamworth, Lichfield, Stoke-on-Trent and Blackburn.
