Impetus-PEF, the organisation which works to transform the prospects of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds by ensuring they get the support they need to succeed in education and employment, has invested an additional £600,000 in Street League. Impetus-PEF first invested in Street League in 2009 and had already provided £1.1million in support.

Street League CEO Matt Stevenson-Dodd said: “Impetus-PEF have been pivotal to Street League’s development and growth over the past few years. Since their first investment in 2009, Street League has grown nationally from operating in two regions to currently being active in fourteen regions across England and Scotland. We are now supporting over 1000 young people each year into employment, education, or training. The high quality advice we receive from the Investment Director as well as the pro-bono advice has been invaluable to our charity.”

The funding, which has helped Street League increase the number of young people it helps into employment, education and training, is coupled with the pro-bono support which provides management support, legal advice, the design and implementation of a CRM system and mentoring for Street League’s Chief Executive.

Vanessa Morphet, Investment Director at Impetus – The Private Equity Foundation said: “We are really excited about our re-investment in Street League and are looking forward to working with them on a Theory of Change workshop to help refine and operationalise their mission. Street League is already outcomes focused and this process will support them to deliver long term outcomes more reliably and sustainably.”
