Working to create positive futures for Young People
XLP is about creating positive futures for young people growing up on inner-city communities in London.
The young people we work with may struggle daily with issues such as family breakdown, unemployment and educational failure, and living in areas that experience high levels of anti-social behaviour and gang violence.
Every year we help thousands of young people recognise their full potential. We believe positive, long-term relationships can restore a young person’s trust in people, nurture the belief that things can change, encourage them to set positive goals, and work hard to achieve them.
