We need your help to grow
In 2012 David Pinchin saw a gap in the charity market for pre-NEET school leavers from disadvantaged backgrounds that were bright and yet, because of their circumstances, would probably never fulfill their potential. State schools and particularly those in inner city deprived areas do not prepare young people for the world of work. School leavers from this kind of background do not have social capital or adequate guidance. Determined to make a difference and provide social mobility for bright enthusiastic young people, with a focus on diversity and equality, the charity Leadership Through Sport & Business was born.
“Angel” investors David Pinchin, Lord (Jim) O'Neill of Gatley and Michael Spencer (through ICAP's charity day) provided the seed capital for the charity in 2012 and 2013. In 2014 LTSB received long-term grants (3 years+) from the Macquarie Group Foundation and Futures for Kids, the charity arm of the FIA.
We have a proven track record – and now want to expand.
We are in the Right Place at the Right Time
LTSB helps disadvantaged young people become the best versions of themselves, building their confidence, skills and network and then giving them access to a career in accounting and finance through an AAT Level 3 apprenticeship. The impact of our work is transformative and has a far-reaching and long-term positive effect on the young people, their families, their communities, the economy and society as a whole.
Support for growth
LTSB aims to scale up operations in London, Birmingham and Manchester in 2016-17 and to add Liverpool, and possibly Ipswich, Newcastle or Reading in 2017-18. To achieve this expansion we need to secure further core funding.
