The Young Foundation

The UpRising leadership programme has been developed by the The Young Foundation, a centre for social innovation based in East London.

Our main goal is to speed up society’s ability to respond to changing needs through innovating and replicating new methods and models.Our work programme has three strands – Launchpad, Local projects and Research – all of which complement each other in the shared goal of finding practical initiatives to meet unmet needs.

The Foundation was launched in 2005, but builds on a long history. Our predecessor organisations under Michael Young were responsible for far-reaching innovations such as the creation of the Open University, Tower Hamlets Summer University and the School for Social Entrepreneurs as well as pioneering research on changing patterns of community and family life.
