By choosing to support us, you’ll be transforming hundreds of lives each year. You can do so through the work of Resurgo as a whole, or by targeting your support to one of our charitable initiatives specifically – the Spear Programme or Re-Work.
Our work is set apart by its coaching approach and focus on soft skills and attitudes. It’s these, more than short-term practical fixes, that really embed change – meaning you can be confident your support has a long-term impact.
We’ll work with you to tailor a bespoke partnership that suits your objectives. You’ll have a key contact, receive tailored proposals and regular reporting.
We’re proud to offer unique opportunities for you to see your support in action. Meet our trainees and coaches face to face, either in the training room or at Spear Celebration.
Since launching the Spear Programme in 2004, we’ve support more than 7,500 young people. We’re proud that 75% of those who completed the first six weeks of Spear (Spear Foundation) not only get into work or further training, but remain there a year later.
Coaching equips our trainees to make a change for themselves. We don’t simply give them the answers; we work with them to identify blockers, and raise their belief that they can find solutions for themselves.
Plus, we’re really good at it. Find out more about our coaching expertise here.
We don’t hand simply hand our trainees a CV and send them on their way. Rather, our programme content focusses on soft skills to help trainees tackle attitudinal and behavioural issues. We’re all about changing the mindset of disengaged young people, empowering them to build resilience, negotiate conflict, manage their emotions, and take responsibility for their own futures.
Each trainee who completes the initial six-week Spear Foundation receives a full year of follow-on support. This one-to-one support from their coach is tailored to their specific needs. This might look like dedicated job application support and interview preparation, or coaching around progressing in their career.
We partner with employers, including Burberry, EQ Investors (Financial Services), to provide employment opportunities to young people who wouldn’t necessarily be accessible to them. Our ‘Hire Me’ events bring together our trainees to meet directly with local employers offering life job opportunities.
We hold ourselves to the highest standards of impact. Thanks to the quality of our data, we know that Spear trainees are 3x more likely to be in work or education 3 months after Spear, than their similarly benchmarked peers. We pride ourselves that we are consistently in touch with 95% of our trainees a full year after the programme, giving us huge confidence in our outcome data.
