Where upReach Associates are from
Where you are born has a significant impact on your employment outcomes. Young people
from outside London, particularly in rural areas, often have limited access to networks and work
experience opportunities more commonly afforded to young people in the capital.
Historically, applicants to our programmes have been disproportionately from London and the South
East, and this is reflected in the fact that 48% of our Associates in 2018/19 were from London.
To ensure those on our programmes are more representative of the UK as a whole, upReach are
opening new regional offices. Our first office outside London opened in Manchester in October
2018, Bristol opened in 2020 and Nottingham and Newcastle will open in 2021.
