UpRising's response to Coronavirus

UpRising's response to Coronavirus

March 19, 2020

Following the government’s advice and recommendations around Coronavirus (Covid-19), we have made the difficult decision to move our upcoming UpRising sessions to an online webinar format.

The health and wellbeing of our participants, speakers and staff is our priority and moving to virtual sessions will allow us to limit face-to-face interactions whilst still supporting the young people we work with.

At UpRising, we are in the fortunate position to be working with some of the most dynamiccreative and innovative young people in the UK. We are drawing our inspiration from them and using this challenge as an opportunity to try new ways of working whilst still achieving the best outcomes for young people in a digital format.

We would like to thank our local delivery teams who are being so adaptable and enthusiastic, all of our partners and funders who are being so supportive and of course our UpRisers who are showing resilience, compassion and a determination to succeed.

We understand that now, more than ever, we need opportunities for people to come together and interact, learn and lead in a digital space and we are excited to keep you updated on our journey with this.

However, this presents us with increasing challenges and demands as a charity. If you are able to, we would welcome any donations in order that we have the space to innovate, adapt and deliver to some of the most vulnerable young people in society.

You can donate below and help to spread some positivity in these uncertain times.
