Our 2023 Impact Report

2023 Impact Report

We are excited to share our 2023 Impact Report, sharing the outcomes and impact of our programmes which started in September 2022 and March 2023 and involved 617 young people.

2023 marked our 10th anniversary as a charity and the following incredible achievements and highlights:

  • Welcoming eight new school partners to our network;

  • Being recognised in the NatWest SE100 - Top 100 Social Enterprises in the UK for the third year;

  • Developing our innovative partnership with the London Borough of Hounslow; supporting eight cohorts of young people across six Hounslow schools;

  • Strengthening our partnerships with our existing corporate supporters and beginning to work with new ones;

  • Introducing innovative ways of reaching our target audience to tell them about what we do through the use of more sophisticated customer relationship management tools;

  • Achieving our highest turnover to date and achieving a small surplus, which supports us in the important task of building our reserves;

  • Developing our three-year and long-term strategy plans.

Students on their ITW day

For me, the biggest milestone of the year was in December, when we celebrated Yes Futures’ 10th Anniversary of becoming a registered charity. 10 years ago we were a tiny volunteer-run organisation, about to embark on our first pilot programme, for 10 young people in a school in Feltham. In that first year, we proved our impact model, gained further funding and employed our first member of staff. I am immeasurably proud of the progress we have made since then (see more detail on page 5!) - expanding beyond London, developing a primary school programme, withstanding the challenges of a pandemic and emerging even stronger. 

We have now supported over 3,000 young people to believe in themselves and discover their personal potential.” - Sarah Sewell, CEO

In the next three years (by the end of 2026) we want to have scaled our impact and deepened our influence, in order to be making a substantial difference to many more young people’s lives than ever before. To guide us there, the trustees and team have been working on a new long-term strategy which we look forward to publishing later this year in 2024. This strategy has our vision, for all young people to believe in themselves and discover their personal potential, at its heart. Why? Because positive futures begin with self-belief.

We hope you will enjoy reading our 2023 Impact Report, we are incredibly proud of the impact we have made on our young people with the support of our funders, corporate partners, our amazing volunteer coaches and the Yes Futures team.
