Resurgo celebrates 15 years! This is an important milestone in the life of the organisation, and we’re so grateful to our supporters for making this possible.
Resurgo is chosen as a winner of the prestigious Princess Royal Training Award, which is given to organisations whose internal training is recognised to be of exceptional quality. Following an inspection by an independent assessor, we were thrilled to be named as a recipient, along with 40 other UK businesses and organisations.
Resurgo is ranked fourth in this year’s UK Best Workplaces Award in the Small Business category. Tom O’Byrne, Great Place to Work® CEO says: “It is a validation of the strength of [Resurgo’s] leadership and their commitment to creating the kind of culture where employees enjoy coming to work and want to do their best. The hallmark of a great workplace like Resurgo is that their policies and practices are designed around the employee; this employee focus helps attract and retain the talent essential for driving and sustaining competitive performance.”
Resurgo is awarded the ERSA Award for Services to Youth Unemployment, in recognition of the Spear programme. The ERSA Employability Awards seek to celebrate people and organisations working across the employment support sector to help jobseekers in their journey towards employment, including specialist employment support organisations, personal advisors, employers and jobseekers themselves.

In a delightful echo to our original inspiration, former US President and Nobel Peace Prize winner Jimmy Carter, visits Resurgo in honour of Nelson Mandela’s commitment to highly effective local community organisations. Resurgo was selected by The Elders, a group of global leaders gathered by Mandela, to work for peace and human rights.

Resurgo was constituted as a charitable company as co-founder Jo Rice joins the organisation.
A group of trustees from St.Paul’s Hammersmith began to gather together to create a charity which would provide advice and training to local people.
Living in South Africa, Resurgo founder Tom Jackson was deeply struck by the example of Nelson Mandela and the spirit of “nation-building” he released in others. Tom encountered people creating jobs, building homes and volunteering in hospitals, to help the most disadvantaged change their lives. What would a similar movement of citizens look like to strengthen society in the UK?
