Resurgo & Impetus

Impetus’ expertise has been truly revolutionary. Our partnership is helping create a robust platform to help more disadvantaged young people succeed in work.

– Revd Tom Jackson, CEO, Resurgo

The need: Over 800,000 young people spend a year out of work, education or training with long-term consequences for their employability, confidence and earnings.

Our charity partner: Resurgo's award-winning Spear programme helps to get the most disengaged young people ready for work and into a job.

Our impact: Resurgo has grown from a small west London project to a charity with eight centres across London and one in Brighton. We helped them develop a strategy for growth while retaining a focus on delivering a high-quality programme. Our Youth Jobs Gap data has found that Resurgo's programme significantly out-performed benchmark education, employment and training outcomes for every age range and qualification level, when measured at three, six, nine and 12 months after completing.
