Enabling young working class people to become community leaders

RECLAIM is a youth leadership and social change organisation set up in Moss Side in 2007 to identify and support young leaders from the community. They run intensive leadership programmes for 12-15 year olds from working class communities and co-design with their young people a range of pilot projects and campaigns on issues that affect working class communities.  

RECLAIM say they exist "to end the leadership inequality that prevents working class young people with talent, imagination, ambition and drive, from fulfilling their leadership potential."

Their campaigns have included work to support more working class young people and those from BAME backgrounds into higher education, initiatives to ensure greater awareness around Child Sexual Exploitation from the perspective of survivors and campaigns to highlight the effect that inner-city gentrification has had on young people from these communities.
