Over two million young people in the UK live with the daily reality of economic deprivation. They are at greater risk of falling behind at school and when they leave school, of not being able to access university or find and keep jobs.

Impetus – The Private Equity Foundation (Impetus-PEF) transforms the lives of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds by ensuring they get the support they need to succeed in education, in work, in life.

We find, invest in and build the best charities in the country working with these young people, helping them to have a bigger impact and on more young lives. We do this by providing them with a unique package of funding, management and pro bono support.

This, and our work to influence the policy and resource decisions that impact young people’s lives, enables us to make a real contribution to closing the education and employment gaps between young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and their peers

We are working with over 20 charity partners and through their programmes, currently help over 80,000 young people to achieve in education, prepare for and keep long-term employment and develop essential life skills. Find out more at
