Urban Uprising is a UK registered charity. We fund climbing and educational programs for hard to reach young people.
With the support of TCA Glasgow, we opened up several Uprisings in Glasgow, in early 2016. These run during the school holidays and are proving to be a real success. We’ve also opened up an Edinburgh Uprising in 2017 which runs out of EICA Ratho and the Edinburgh University climbing wall. These run once a week for 2 hours and have 10 young people involved. They are very cost effective. Each session costs just over £100 to run, meaning that each child gets a life enhancing experience for just £5 per hour.
Impact. We measure the impact of what we’re doing to ensure that we’re being as effective as we can be. This is being done for us by Dr Robert Porter.
Your donations are vital to the work we do and help provide children’s climbing equipment, bus hire, staff wages and other essential costs.
We take the issue of safeguarding and protecting children very seriously. All of our staff have PVG certificates as a minimum and we work with social workers who are aware of child protection issues and requirements.
If you’d like to know more specifics then please get in touch and we’ll be happy to explain in more detail.
