Our mission is to to help communities overcome social challenges through outstanding church-based social ventures. We bring together resources from across the wider neighbourhood and tackle complex issues in a truly transformational way.
Resurgo's main initiative Spear bridges the gap between unemployed young people and businesses, while Resurgo Investors accelerates the reach and impact of outstanding church-based social ventures through social investment.
Resurgo Trust is a ten year old charity founded through St. Paul’s church in Hammersmith in 2003. From the outset, it has aimed to stimulate significant social transformation in local communities by helping people facing serious social disadvantage to transform their situation.
Over the past decade, Spear it’s flagship initiative has helped over 2,500 young people into employment or education. Since the first Spear course was launched in Hammersmith in 2004, we have grown to eight centres across London, working with over 750 young people each year.
Resurgo seeks to raise aspiration in those it serves and to inspire others in the community to participate by working together. Over 200 volunteers participate in Resurgo’s services annually.
In July 2010, following six months of due diligence, Resurgo was adopted onto the Impetus-PEF venture philanthropy portfolio to support its impact, replication and growth.
In 2013, Resurgo won the Guardian Charity Awards recognised for our outstanding contribution to social welfare, excellence and innovation among small and medium sized charities.
