Looking Ahead to 2018

August 22, 2017

Following a massively successful and rewarding 2016 / 17, we’re gearing to up to deliver 29 Programmes to over 900 participants over the coming year.

Here’s a sneak preview as to what we have in store:

  • A newly launched programme for young refugees and asylum seekers called ‘Surviving to Thriving’, in partnership with the Refugee Council and the British Red Cross.

  • The Environmental Leadership Programme starts again in November, following it’s hugely successful first year.

  • The Cardiff Leadership Programme will start in October applications are open now.

  • We are staggering the start of the next Leadership Programmes in Manchester,  Liverpool, London, Befordshire and Birmingham, which means our next Leadership Programmes will start in 2018. We are currently fundraising to run these Programmes. You can help us reach our target by setting up regular giving or donating directly to the UpRising charity here.


I’m sure you can agree, it’s a very exciting (and busy!) time for UpRising and our young adults. We can’t wait to see what the next 12 months brings.
