XLP is about creating positive futures for young people growing up on inner-city estates, struggling daily with issues such as family breakdown, unemployment and educational failure, and living in areas that experience high levels of anti-social behaviour and gang violence. Every year XLP helps thousands of young people recognise their full potential. We believe positive, long-term relationships can restore a young person’s trust in people, nurture the belief that things can change and encourage them to set positive goals and work hard to achieve them.
XLP Teams up with Children in Need!
On 16th Oct, on BBC1s “The One Show”, Children in Need launched their 2019 Rickshaw Challenge, raising money for vulnerable children and young people. Joining the team this year is Uche who is well known to XLP friends and supporters from this year’s film and Annual Dinner.
Uche said: “Following the stabbing I found things quite difficult but with the help of XLP I have been able to focus on my future and make the best of my situation. I’m really looking forward to being a part of Team Rickshaw and hope that the people of the UK will get behind us and help us to raise money for BBC Children in Need.”
You can follow Uche’s progress between 8th and 15th November at www.bbc.co.uk/pudsey or check out his full story below.
