About the Spear Programme

🌟 Igniting a Vision of the Possible

Spear Islington is dedicated to empowering 16 to 24-year-olds, building their confidence and abilities for a successful future. Our Spear Programme, a highly interactive, year-long coaching initiative, transforms lives by facilitating sustainable employment and educational opportunities.

The initial programme runs for six weeks followed with a year of support for each participant to ensure long-term success.

 It offers young people in Islington and the local area the opportunity to challenge their mindset and improve their work readiness. It enables them to kick start their career and find long-term employment.

🔍 Did You Know?

  • We work with up to 100 young people annually, breaking barriers to employment.
  • 80% of Spear Islington participants are in sustainable employment or further education one year after completing the programme.
  • Spear Islington is funded entirely by the donations of generous supporters, so anything you can give makes a real difference. 

The majority of young people we work with are referred by one of our partners – local job centres, youth offending teams, social services, and other local council representatives. It costs £2,000 per person to support each young person through the initial 6 week programme and following 12 months of career support. Funds raised will help directly support the operational costs of this programme.
