Our Impact

Our ThinkForward programme works with hard to reach, disengaged young people in Tower Hamlets and Islington in London, Nottingham, and Kent.

MoveForward works in London, Kent and the West Midlands with young people who have mild to moderate learning disabilities with the aim of supporting them into sustainable paid employment.

“ThinkForward has proved in practise with real young people that it has truly understood the value of preventing rather than treating the challenge of young people who are NEET (not in education, employment or training), that’s just one of the reasons I love working with them.”

- Graham Allen, former Nottingham North MP

Our impact

Attendance, attainment, behaviour and exam results are all important in ensuring young people make a successful transition from education into employment.

Support us

Help us to prevent the next generation of youth unemployment.


ThinkForward was created in 2011 by Impetus (Previously known as Impetus - The Private Equity Foundation) following its research into how to dramatically reduce the likelihood of young people becoming NEET (not in education, employment or training). They are still a strategic partner today.
