RECLAIM is a youth leadership and social change organisation. We are a small but bold charity, using our experience and platform to support and amplify the voices of working class young people.
We exist to create a society in which being from a working-class background no longer presents barriers to achievement, success, or influence.
Our long term goal is to create a Britain where those from working-class backgrounds are proud of – and not held back by – our roots. We want working-class people to be represented in places where decisions are made about their lives and to be recognised for their talent, strength, and diversity. We want to see working-class young people at the heart of this, in a country that ensures that they are seen, heard, and leading change.
Work supported by Act for Change Fund
Working Class Young People – Being Seen, Being Heard, Leading Change.
RECLAIM supports young working-class people living in Greater Manchester to lead change in the systems that limit working class young people’s opportunities. This grant will fund young people to campaign nationally and locally around issues of discrimination, inequality and stigmatisation arising from unfair economic and political systems.
