City Gateway

Working with Impetus-PEF is invaluable in delivering the best tailored service to help each one of the young people we work with reach their full potential.

– David Wesson, CEO, City Gateway


The need: Nearly two million young people spend some time neither earning or learning, which can harm their long term prospects.

Our charity partner: City Gateway provides education, training and support to disengaged and disadvantaged young people in east London. Their programme provides pathways into sustained employment, through functional and vocational qualifications, work placements and coaching.

Our impact: With our support, City Gateway aims to treble the number of students completing courses and accessing jobs or training. We have helped them to redesign their courses so that they give students the best chance of getting in to work.
