Imagine a society where everyone reaches their full potential.

Where the future is not defined by the past or determined by the place a person starts.

At City Gateway we work with disadvantaged young people aged 16-24 and vulnerable women aged 19+ supporting them from wherever they start into sustained employment through a unique programme of education and employability coaching. In doing so, we help break the cycle of poverty in households and communities around London.

Our programmes work. We more than double the chance of a disadvantaged young person gaining employment. 89% of our students are BAME and since Covid-19 hit we have seen a 94% increase in demand for our support and record numbers of applications.

We want to ensure City Gateway is there for every young or vulnerable person who needs our help. Our young people are 50% more likely to be unemployed compared to their advantaged peers with identical qualifications. Qualifications are important but they are only half the story. We need your support to ensure we can provide the wraparound support and training that makes the difference.

This September we are welcoming a brand-new group of students, many of whom have already had to overcome personal challenges to get to where they are today. We want to ensure each one of them is equipped with the tools they need to reach their full potential. Your support can help us make that a reality. Will you help make a difference in the lives of young people this year?

Your gift of £10 could help us provide a Welcome Bag for a new student including a reusable water bottle, PPE, Notebook, Pen and Course Book enabling them to engage with their lessons and remain Covid secure as they start their training.

£20 could help us provide a 30-minute coaching session to a young person in their first week of lessons. Giving them advice and guidance on any problems at home and helping them settle in well, increasing their chance of completing the course.

£40 could help us provide five days of Breakfast Club for our young people who are unable to afford to eat breakfast. This will enable them to concentrate in lessons and succeed.

£60 could help a young person take part in a two-day intensive interview and CV workshop, helping them gain an apprenticeship or job and secure their future.

£100 could help us provide a laptop and secure office space to enable a young person with unstable housing to take part in our Remote Work Experience – completing our programme makes them four times more likely to gain an apprenticeship.
