Resurgo & Impetus
Impetus’ expertise has been truly revolutionary. Our partnership is helping create a robust platform to help more young people from disadvantaged backgrounds succeed in work.
– Revd Tom Jackson, Founder, Resurgo
The need: Young people from disadvantaged backgrounds are twice as likely to not be in education, employment or training than their better-off peers, with long-term consequences for their employability, confidence and earning.
Our charity partner: Resurgo's award-winning Spear programme helps to get disengaged young people ready for work and into a job.
Our impact: Resurgo has grown from a small west London project to a charity with 10 centres across London, Brighton and Leeds. This scale has been made possible with Impetus’ support and emphasis on impact, ensuring Resurgo retains a focus on delivering a high-quality programme through their growth. Our Youth Jobs Gap research has found their programme significantly out-performed benchmark education, employment and training outcomes for every age range and qualification level, when measured at three, six, nine and 12 months after completing.
