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.
At XLP, we are continuing to serve our young people in these challenging times - young people who need us now more than ever. We have developed a range of online tools to enable us to keep working with young people. We're now meeting in-person again, and through video conferencing we've been able to keep up face-to-face youth work throughout lockdown, as well as training for mentors and family check-ins. Funding will be a real pressure on us in the coming months, as with many other charities. If you're able to give, please do click the donate button to keep this work going.
