Life Chances Campaign

The Mudchute Association is a delivery partner for East End Community Foundation’s Life Chances campaign, which supports young people’s wellbeing and employment. Whilst the East End is one of the most diverse and vibrant areas of London, it has some of the highest levels of poverty amongst children and older people in the country. The pandemic has exacerbated these inequalities, meaning the East End has been the hardest hit by unemployment, loneliness, deprivation and social exclusion. A quarter of 18-24-year-olds were furloughed or lost their jobs during the pandemic and 1 in 6 are experiencing poor mental health. Vulnerable young people lack safe spaces and are at higher risk of engaging in gangs, substance misuse and other harmful practices.

Through the Life Chances Campaign we are working to tackle these issues by providing the targeted support young people need to increase confidence and develop key skills to improve their employment opportunities.
