Students from lower income backgrounds are less likely to succeed. It shouldn’t be this way.

30% of children, or nine pupils in every classroom of 30, are living in poverty. These pupils have:

LOWER STANDARD OF EDUCATION

Poorer students are half as likely to attend schools rated outstanding by OFSTED.

LESS PROSPECTS

21% of lower-income students attend university, compared to 85% of students from private schools.

LOWER PAY

Graduates from lower-income backgrounds get paid 10% less than their peers, even with the same qualifications.

The Young People’s Development Foundation seeks to fill this opportunity gap. Through a network of young people, YPDF makes knowledge and resources accessible.  Learn more about what we do here:
