Social mobility through education
Raising aspirations, removing barriers
Our objective is to inspire and support young people into life science careers, including healthcare and allied professions.
Helping young people realise what they can be
Currently, only 11% of UK doctors are from the lowest socio-economic group. If this low social mobility continues, the talents of thousands of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds will be wasted because of the practical and other barriers they face.
Our vision is of a nation where talented, motivated individuals are not excluded from the career of their choice because of poverty or any other disadvantage.
Access to knowledge
We feel that early access to knowledge is key. Not all young people have the social networks around them to make the best informed choices. Not all young people have the traditions and backgrounds that make them feel they have a choice.
All young people deserve the chance to be all they can be.
