The Stepladder Foundation’s mission is to combat the social inequalities linked to economic disadvantage, ethnicity and social class. We aim to ensure that young people of all socio-economic backgrounds in the UK have the opportunity to climb high and exceed expectations.
Stepladder is about success, aspiration and innovation. Founded in 2000, our pioneering work with children establishes new, imaginative and flexible approaches to learning for those identified as ‘disadvantaged.’
Our programmes to date have focused on supporting a diverse range of young people to attain and aspire to the exceptional. Please have a look at our case studies page for more information on the amazing things our alumni have gone on to achieve.
