At Uppertunity, we don't just do social change, we are social change. Below you can find our impact report, a short video and various key facts about what we do and the difference we make.
We are a registered Community Interest Company (a type of non-profit social enterprise), working with individuals (16+) with learning disabilities, autism and mental health barriers. We focus on an individual’s strengths and aspirations, then work with them to realise their potential, leading to self-worth and independence. We do this through: creative workshops, group and community work, mentoring, skill development programs, meaningful volunteering roles and social events.
We have four mission goals.
To empower individuals and help create, develop and maintain purpose and self-worth.
To improve how people perceive themselves and their ability to change the world.
To change the perception of those with additional needs.
To create environmentally sustainable communities.
