Founded in 2018, the foundation partners with schools and colleges across Wales to identify students that have strong academic potential, but for a variety of external factors, such as family unemployment, negative peer pressure or lack of effective role models, are restricted from seeing their full potential materialise.
To remove socio-economic barriers that often prevent a child from succeeding academically, despite having the potential. We do this by providing a stable foundation for students to focus on their studies. Through the use of multi year financial support and corporate style mentoring to those identified as at risk, with the single aim of advancing their grades at GCSE and A-Level, furthering their education, and ultimately allowing them to break free of a life time of poverty or crime.
