Founding patrons

We are proud to have the following leaders as our founding Patrons: the former Prime Minister Rt Hon. David Cameron; the Rt Hon. Nick Clegg, former MP and Deputy Prime Minister; and Rt Hon. Ed Miliband MP. 

Ed Miliband

"The promise of Britain is that the next generation does better than the last. This can only happen if there is equality of opportunity. Too many young men and women are held back by lacking networks and opportunities others in more privileged positions take for granted. UpRising is working to change this, and has my full support."



Nick Clegg

"For too long in our country it's been a case of who you know, not what you know."

David Cameron

"Over the years, this organisation has done incredible work for young people in Britain."
