At the Berkeley Foundation, we believe every young person has enormous potential.

Since 2011, we have been working in partnership with the voluntary sector and others to help young people overcome barriers, improve their lives and build a better society. For a snapshot of the Foundation's work in 2020 please visit our annual review microsite.
