What we do

UpRising is a UK-wide youth leadership development organisation. Our mission is to open pathways to power for talented young people from diverse and underrepresented backgrounds. We equip them with the knowledge, networks, skills, and confidence to fulfil their leadership potential, find new opportunities and transform the world around them through social action.

UpRising - developing the leaders of tomorrow 

UpRising has been delivering programmes since 2008, and now run a range of programmes in London, Bedford, Luton, Birmingham, Stoke-on-Trent, Manchester, Cardiff and Liverpool - with a growing alumni of over 2,000 young people.


The people who represent our interests and lead our institutions do not reflect the population of Britain today.  The majority of those with power often come from a narrow range of backgrounds. We want to unearth and inspire young talent across the UK, so that our communities will have leaders who truly understand and address their needs.

By engaging in social action and understanding more about how decisions get made, young people become better equipped to champion the issues they care about


We offer a range of leadership and employability programmes for 16-25 year olds.  Our flagship programme is a nine month leadership programme providing ‘access behind the scenes’ training sessions with some of the UK’s most senior leaders across the political, private, public and not for profit sectors.  All participants work with other UpRisers to design and deliver a social action campaign on a local issue they are passionate about.
