UpRising is a part time leadership programme designed to open pathways to civic society and create future leaders in political and public life. It recruits talented young people from diverse backgrounds and equips them with the skills, experience and confidence to become the leaders of tomorrow and create positive change in their communities.
The programme launched in Bedford in October 2011, supported by the Harpur Trust. To date, UpRising is working with 40 young people from Bedford who in turn have reached hundreds of other members of the local community through their Social Action Campaigns.
