Get Set Girls

Our beneficiaries are young people mainly aged 16-18 from the London Boroughs of Hackney and Haringey. They come from low-income families and have little potential for breaking out of the poverty cycle through accessing further education and lucrative employment. They are also from BME communities and are therefore socially excluded. Our organisation targets these young people through outreach work and offers them training packages resulting in approx 90% success rate in entering employment.

Founded 2000
