We support undeserved young people to address social mobility and better lives

Story

We are running to make a difference for social mobility charity WeMindTheGap. This small but powerful charity started with a simple thought: ‘what opportunities would be created for our most disadvantaged young people if they had access to the love, care, skills and support that most of us take for granted?’.

In recent years over 200 young people have moved from being prisoners of circumstance to pilots of their own lives – all with confidence, choices, and aspirations for the future - as a result of taking part in WeMindThe Gap’s holistic programmes. And I want to allow more young people to have that same opportunity.

The charity runs three distinct programmes – WeDiscover (a virtual ten week programme for isolated young people aged 16 – 25), WeGrow (a six-month employment programme for under-served young people aged 18 – 25), and WeBelong (its alumni programme, which gives lifelong support and friendship to every one of our graduates) - across North Wales and the Northwest, both in person and virtually - and all graduates remain part of the WeMindTheGap family for life.

WeMindTheGap relies on the support of its fantastic communities and fundraisers to help raise life-changing money, and want to offer this chance to more disadvantaged young people in more communities every year. Every pound and penny raised will help them to provide a future for a young person that they never believed was possible – this really is social mobility in action.
