About the Renaissance Foundation

Renaissance Foundation inspires young people from Tower Hamlets living with significant challenges to fulfil their unique potential. We focus exclusively on three hard-to-reach groups: young carers; young hospital patients suffering from life-limiting conditions and transitioning from child care to adult care; and young pupils from deprived backgrounds (‘school pupils at risk’), typically aged between 13 and 17 and referred to us by well respected authorities. We use the power of inspiration, creative and digital learning and vocational development in our programmes. This helps our three communities develop key strengths to support high aspirations including resilience, confidence in public settings and positive engagement with society and the workplace.
