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.
COVID-19 Update (January 2021)
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.
