Drive Forward Foundation

Founded in 2010 Drive Forward Foundation aims to support care leavers aged 16-26 in London to achieve their full potential through employment and education. With over 40% of care leavers being NEET (Not in Employment, Education or Training) and about half of them suffering from mental health disorder, care leavers present a highly vulnerable but also hugely neglected group within our society.

Our approach is based on the belief that meaningful employment and a career path of the individual's own choice, can help young people overcome the hurdles in front of them and create a better future for themselves. Our employment consultants therefore work with our clients on a 1-2-1 basis, providing guidance and support around planning a career and moving into independence. Also, our training sessions focus on improving employability, presentation and public speaking skills on the one hand, and increasing individuals' confidence, motivation and basic communication skills on the other. Our corporate partners and special relationships to top employers in London further enable us to offer exclusive employment opportunities, internships and work experience to the young people working with us. Running interview preparation sessions and CV masterclasses, as well as donation their skills and time as mentors, their staff further support individuals to achieve their career goals.

Those four components, 10201 support + bespoke training + opportunities + mentoring, add up to a holistic approach, enabling care leavers to actively start shaping their own futures.
