Future Frontiers

Future Frontiers is a fantastic education charity that exists to support young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and help them to reach their full potential.

It is a sad fact that the income of the family that you were born into is still the strongest indicator of where you will end up. Young people from low-income backgrounds are less likely to do well at school, less likely to progress to higher education and less likely to enter secure and fulfilling employment.

These inequalities are laid bare when a young person turns 16. The decisions they make at this critical juncture have consequences that last a lifetime. Too many are deprived of the guidance and networks they need to make informed decisions about their future.

​Future Frontiers is an award-winning social mobility education charity. Theirmission is to provide disadvantaged young people with the guidance, networks and opportunities they need to realise their potential at school and achieve post-16 qualifications that build towards secure and fulfilling employment. Future Frontierswork with schools and businesses in London to provide a programme of careers coaching and access to professional role models for 14-16 year olds. Last year, they worked in 78 schools around 28 of London's boroughs; to date, they have supported more than 10,000 young people in order to achieve their vision of a society where equal access to education and career opportunities enables potential to overcome poverty.

Because recruitment companies are so naturally well-suited to work with Future Frontiers as the professional business partners for these programmes, RBW are working directly with both the Charity themselves and APSCo (Association of Professional Staffing Companies), the leading professional body representing the recruitment profession in the UK, to promote the opportunity for as many recruitment companies as possible to get involved.

This opportunity is not exclusive to recruitment companies, so if you represent any business with a London-based team wishing to help to promote socioeconomic diversity, and you would like to find out how to get involved then you can do so here: Future Frontiers website.
