The award-winning Spear Programme helps disadvantaged young people overcome the challenges they face and build vital skills for their career, be fully prepared for the workplace and commit to long-term employment.

Spear Brighton’s vision is to transform the lives of up to 90 young people from disadvantaged backgrounds in Brighton each year, giving them the support, skills and confidence they need to get into work (or re-enter education) and begin to build a future filled with hope.

The Resurgo Trust launched the programme 15 years ago in London and since then, Spear has impacted the lives of over 5,000 16-24 year olds. 75% of those who complete the Spear programme not only get into work, but remain there a year later.

Spear Brighton was launched in September 2018 in partnership with the Resurgo Trust and St Peter’s Brighton, and is the first Spear programme outside of London.
