Our journey

“I saw the issue of educational inequity up close and personal as a Teach First teacher. The children were amazing, not much younger than I was, but funnier, more resilient, and generally much smarter. But they were mostly born into poverty and attended a school that wasn’t adequate at that time. As a result, they weren’t getting the start in life they needed and few would realise their true potential. That sense of wasted human potential still haunts me.”

Graeme Duncan, CEO

We founded Right to Succeed in 2015 to improve outcomes of children and young people growing up in the UK’s most deprived communities. Since then, we have supported these communities to work collectively to build on their strengths and create more opportunities for children and young people to succeed and ultimately, thrive.
