Working to create positive futures for young people
XLP is about creating positive futures for young people growing up in inner-city London
We are helping over 4,000 young people live more fulfilled lives each year. The young people we work with often struggle with issues such as family breakdown, unemployment and educational failure, and live in areas that experience high levels of anti-social behaviour and gang violence.
We keep young people in school and out of gangs through a variety of activities and support. We believe positive, long-term relationships can restore a young person's trust in people, nurture the belief that things can change, encourage them to set positive goals, and work hard to achieve them.
You can see the impact XLP has had on young people over our 28-year history through some of their stories on our website at xlp.org.uk/stories
