Partners, Supporters and Volunteers

Working with collaborators
to make impact

As a community business, we exist to make an impact on the life chances of young people growing up around us. To do this we leverage the amazing assets of our community and our city. We make connections and engage our community.

We would like to thank all of our partners for the amazing support on our journey so far.

New to We Rise but interested in supporting us? We would love you to join in too!


How we work with people


We deliver tailored and targeted programmes for schools to support particular groups of young people who face disadvantage and require additional support to thrive. Our programmes are innovative, highly successful and significantly benefit our partner schools.

“The mix of visits, coaching and workshops, including students preparing a ‘Story of Me’ for presenting to others, enabled students to enhance their employability skills and increased their understanding of the labour market across a range of sectors.” Independent evaluation

If you would like to find out details of any of our Access All Areas, Transitions, and Futures programmes and their impact please get in touch as we have a lot to talk about!

According to the Careers and Enterprise Company, the best way to improve young people’s future outcomes is by giving them high quality interactions with employers. The more interactions with employers the greater the impact.

We help young people have this interaction by running networking events where they can meet real people from the world of work.

Having a conversation with you about your work can have a massive impact on a young person.

By giving up as little as an hour you can open up many young minds, increasing their understanding of careers and what they need to do to be successful.

We are always looking for volunteers from all walks of life to help us with our Youth Connect and Mentoring programmes, Masterclasses and work experience placements.

If you think you can help or want to find our more then we would love to hear from you!


A huge thank-you to our fantastic partners and supporters. We couldn’t do it without you!
