Grit (formerly known as Youth at Risk) provides opportunities for people to break through limitations with a focus on enabling young adults to lead flourishing lives and build connected communities. We believe that when you change your thinking, you can change your world. And our programmes are designed to do just that. We work with young people and the adults that support them, to change the way they think so that they can radically alter their outcomes in life.

The Julia & Hans Rausing Trust has supported Grit since 2014. The Trust’s most recent support has enabled Grit to re-establish our flagship ‘Community Transformation Programme’ in five communities across the UK, supporting young people living in very challenging circumstances, experiencing significant disadvantage and isolation.
