Details of the Charity:

We support young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to unlock their potential, break down barriers to accessing selective universities to transform their future career prospects. We work with them to make good applications, get the grades and transition to university. Furthermore, students supported by The Access Project typically achieve a higher grade at GCSE and are four times more likely than their peers to progress to a top-third ranked university.
