Who we are and what we do:

Young Enterprise is the UK’s leading charity that empowers young people to harness their personal and business skills. We offer a rich and vibrant local delivery network with a wealth of knowledge and experience coupled with a National and European reach. We engage with innovative new approaches and policy initiatives to help solve some of the most pressing social issues in the UK today; namely high levels of youth unemployment and a lack of financial capability in our young people.

We specialise in delivering financial capability, employability and entrepreneurship skills to young people aged 4-24,  utilising an unrivalled network of business sector volunteers and financial education specialists.


How we monitor, measure and evaluate impact:

Independent research shows our activities are some of the most effective and impactful currently available and we are investing heavily to ensure that our evaluation and impact assessment has the scope and depth necessarily to best guide us moving forward, an example of this is looking at SROI modelling.

Some recent reports about our approach and work are available on our research and evaluation page.


Strong partnerships:

Young Enterprise is an experienced and accomplished delivery partner for grant funders. We work with many that are looking to make a difference by transforming the life chances of young people in some of the most deprived wards and challenging circumstances faced by young people in the UK today. This is a core component of our Access for All strategy.


Examples of recent work with lottery and trust funders

  • Big Lottery Fund

We secured 3 years of Lottery Funding in 2014 for our ‘Be Enterprising, Be Successful’ project which will create a life changing journey for young people from disadvantaged areas. Through a long-term programme of enterprise activities, led by inspirational volunteers from the business world, we are raising young people’s aspirations and developing their employability skills, leading them to improved progression towards employment, education and training. We are working directly with 2,250 young people on this project.
