Resurgo Trust

Resurgo’s flagship initiative is Spear, an award-winning programme helping young unemployed people from disadvantaged backgrounds into sustainable work or education. Spear has supported over 5,000 vulnerable young people over the past decade, with most facing significant barriers to employment, and we are proud of our track record of 75% remaining in work a year later.

Founded 2003
