Why donate to The Access Project?

Talent is everywhere, but opportunity is not.

In 2024, young people from the most under-resourced backgrounds are almost three times less likely to get a place at a top university compared to their better-off peers. We want to make sure all young people have the same opportunities to make the most of their education.

The Access Project combats educational inequality through unique tutoring, mentoring, and enrichment programmes. We empower young people to grow their confidence, raise their grades, and place at top universities. This gives them the best chance at achieving social mobility.

As the cost of living crisis worsens, your support is needed now more than ever. With your help, we can reach more young people in under-resourced areas across the country, creating a fairer future for all.

Meet our students

When he was a child, Ras.I and his mum were left homeless in inner-city London. Facing extreme poverty, his family relied on food banks and he went to school with holes in his shoes.

Ras.I joined The Access Project when he was 15 years old. Our team helped him grow his aspirations and find a pathway to a brighter future. Now, he’s studying at the University of Oxford and has ambitions to become Prime Minister.

“There’s no way I’d be where I am today without The Access Project, and I think that’s true for a lot of kids who benefit from their work. Above all, the charity gives hope. That means everything to a 16-year-old council estate lad like I was, who knows that the odds are stacked against him”.
