We have a range of partners supporting us in our work

Help change the lives of young people

“Can I offer the heartfelt thanks to all involved with the Linacre project for opening our young peoples’ eyes to a wider, more vibrant world of opportunity than they have been able to see before.”

These are the thanks of a parent of a Linacre student – and it shows how much our work is supporting young people in the north of England, who often don’t have the opportunities of their peers in the south of England.  

To help us grow our programme and support more young people – and give them the opportunities they deserve, we need the help of organisations, corporates and individuals.  We already have some great partnerships; but as a small charity, the only way we can grow our impact is through the generosity of others.  

Become a corporate partner

If you’re a corporate and want to support social mobility in the north of England, you will find no better cause than Linacre.  

Corporate sponsorship enables you to help students reach leading universities, and you can get your team involved in mentoring and supporting students – and you’ll also find a great pool of students you may want to hire in the future!
