Fundraising to help combat Youth Unemployment



RISE Up takes place every year in June, and is an opportunity for communities and organisations to RISE UP against youth unemployment. People from all walks of life will walk, climb, run, swim and row to raise funds. These funds will help support work readiness programmes, mentoring and work placements for marginalised young people throughout the UK.

RISE Day is organised and funded by the RISE UP charity which specialises in supporting some of the UK’s most vulnerable young people in finding meaningful careers. For the young people we work with, a job isn’t just a job – it’s security, shelter, financial independence, a sense of belonging and a hope for a better future.

Our impact

RISE UP helps some of the most disadvantaged young people in the UK defy the odds by providing them with a hand-up so that they can build a better future.

Join us in providing a hand-up, rather than a hand-out

RISE Day presents a fun and easy way for organisations to give back to their communities, benefit from enhanced team building, improve workplace culture and build upon existing Corporate and Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives.

3 ways to get involved:

1. join our fundraising event 


One of the biggest barriers young people face to employment is resilience. Youth unemployment in the UK is once again on the rise and in a world that requires degree level education for entry level roles and hiring managers that will only hire in their own image - what chance do marginalised young people have?

This year our RISE UP team and young people will hike in the Peak District to help highlight just how resilient the UK’s most vulnerable young people need to be to defeat the odds and create a better future for themselves.

Join us and fellow supporters for a 20 mile hike in the Peak District. The Edale Skyline is a fantastic first longer distance walking challenge. The route takes you on a high-level adventure across several peaks around the vast and impressive Edale Skyline. Experience some of the best views in the Peak District as you push yourself on this incredible walking challenge. This is an adventure not be missed!



2. Host your own event

Are you passionate about combating youth unemployment? Are you looking for a way to inspire and motivate your teams around a common cause? Then organising your own RISE Day activity could be just the ticket.
