What is Rise Up?

Rise Up

Rise Up is our campaign training programme for 16-24yr olds who want to lead creating change on the issues that matter most to them.

We believe that everyone’s got the right to shape society no matter where you’re from or what you do. But often it’s hard to know where to start. So we’re going back to basics offering a course that will help build skills, knowledge and power to bring about the change you want to see.

You’ll meet people from all walks of life who also want to fight for social change hear from inspirational speakers, technical experts and build your very own action plan to make positive change in your local community and beyond.

Applications for Rise Up 2022/23 will open in March 2022.
