At Urban Uprising, we help give disadvantaged young people the opportunity to transform their futures. Our unique climbing programme gives 8-18 year- olds who face various challenges in life the chance to develop their physical, social and personal strengths with the support and encouragement of highly-trained positive coaches. We know there are barriers – both individual and societal – that prevent some young people from accessing and consistently engaging with new experiences. 

Urban Uprising’s vision is a society where all young people feel engaged and empowered to create a positive future for themselves. In partnership with climbing centres and committed volunteer role models, we are here to support young people to address and overcome the individual root causes of the problem and become their own agents of change.

Urban Uprising operates programmes in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Cambridge and Bristol; often working with young people from the most deprived areas. We partner with local youth charities or schools to bring together groups of young people to take part in our programme.
