What do our partners say about us?

I met Social Ark through the Do it for Real project funded by Spirit of 2012 and Comic Relief. They do
awesome work with young people who have life’s odds stacked against them. Do it for Real aims to
support young people to become social entrepreneurs, and Social Ark’s role is to unlock their hidden
potential. Lisa and her team do that brilliantly, with empathy, realism and loads of practical help.
They really are changing lives for the better for individuals and the wider community in Tower
— Debbie Lye - CEO, Spirit of 2012

thrilled to engage with an organisation that makes such a significant impact on people’s life.

Social Ark is an exceptional organisation, passionate about enabling young people to fully achieve
their exceptional potential and deeply embedded in its local community. Courageous, honest,
